I love socks


So the Knitting Olympics began yesterday; I cast on during the torch-lighting (I assumed the torch was lit based on the time, not on the fact that I was actually watching said ceremony, as we do not have TV). I have only been able to knit a round here and there, as things have been quite busy here this weekend. Anniversary celebration, sermon-writing, and the care and feeding of two toddlers while My Old Man is away all day teaching a seminary class. Still, I’m pleased with my progress. And just as I suspected, I LOVE SOCKS! Especially with this yarn, which is just so utterly delicious.

Oh, and thanks to my fifth anniversary, I now have an LYS gift card burning a hole in my pocket! Wheeee! My Old Man really came through – not only the gift card but a gorgeous little handmade jewelry set (lavender pearl earrings and necklace), made by our neighbor, who does fabulous work.

  1. It is called Malabrigo; it’s a hand-dyed yarn from a cooperative in Uruguay and it is as luscious as it looks. You can read about it at malabrigoyarn.com and order it several different places. I got mine from Kaleidoscope yarn (kyarn.com). It is about $12 for a hank of 215 yards, which is pretty good, especially considering how soft it is.
