Sock Yarn

A couple of weeks ago I won sock yarn from Sedie! Ironically, it was the same day or the day after I finished the 1 self striping sock and figured out I did not have enough yarn for another sock...maybe another toe but not a whole sock. This is Sock Memories from Knitpicks in Spring Prairie.

It came in the mail today and I have wound it into balls...there was a great bit of teeth gnashing of teeth by the kids who were fighting over the ball winder. I don't mind them helping but they aren't so good with the whole tension thing and then yarn ends up getting stuck at least once on the ball winder and if I don't catch it quick enough, then I have to undo a knot or cut it and then I have a big knot with grease on it!

Thanks Sedie! I gotta finish a baby hat & booties before I can start a pair of socks. I saw a cute pair in the IK Spring 2006 issue. I don't think they would look good in a varigated yarn so I will pick another pattern from here.

The colorline of this yarn looks absolutely amazing - I'm already curious to see what sock pattern you'll choose!
