Knee Socks

Here's my newest pair of socks. The yarn is Wollmeise 100% superwash merino. I love them. The Wollmeise colorways are so pretty I really wanted to show it off. I am making up the pattern as I go and taking lots of notes so the 2 nd sock will be the same as the first. I hope to get these done before Estes so I can wear them to the wool market. It is still pretty cool in Colorado in June.

The yarn comes in a 575 yard skein so I should have enough yarn. If I run out I will be in trouble. This yarn sells out so fast I may never get more.

Went to S&B last night at Miss V's house and she had just gotten some of the new Socks That Rock colors. omg people! I must get KawKaw! It will have to wait though as I have decided not to buy any yarn until I go to the wool market in June. I am pretty sure I have enough in stash to last me till then.

One of my favorite cousins is getting married the weekend after Christmas this year and I would like to get something knit for her and her Hubby to be. I am thinking of another Pi blanket. I am in need of another mindless project and it just doesn't get anymore mindless than the Pi blanket. Maybe I will try to add a little lace detail this time. This means I will have to shop for some yarn but I have lots of time on this one too so I can wait.
