Sock Yarn Doesn’t Count… right?

Because if it doesn’t, I only added one skein of lace weight to my stash yesterday… otherwise….

Saturday night was a Halloween party with friends down Niagara way. I was a pirate and discovered that there are advantages to costume parties with re-enactors, my well used polyester pirate costume was accessorized with C.’s tricorn and gorgeous (but much to large) frock coat – it was pretty cool- though I have no pictures.

Sunday was L’s birthday party, so I drove straight downtown and made a stop at the Purple Purl before going to her place. I needed to pick up some yarn as L is getting a pair of these for her birthday (I even got them started last night…).

And of course while I was there I picked up a couple of other things…
* 2 skeins of Kureyon Sock yarn in brand-spankin’-new colour ways 233 and 240.
* yarn for L’s socks (including two options for CC)
* yarn for these socks for A, for Christmas
* 1 skien of really really pretty and really really soft lace-weight (40%silk, 60% SeaCell – 655m)
* The Knitting Workshop (EZ)

The colourway is Tapestry and the yarn is from Dye-Version, which is nice and local being based in Mississauga

I finished the Fanshaw Socks (*yeah*) -and am even wearing them now…
Pattern: modified Generic Sock Recipe
Designer: Yarn Harlot (with whatever modifications I’ve added over time)
Source: Knitting Rules!
Size: 8.5 ladies (or there abouts)
Yarn: Austermann Step
Yardage: between 1/2 and 3/4 of a ball
Needles: 2.5mm dpns

Notes: This is my go to pattern and yarn for everyday socks. Chalk up another pair. I usually do them with a turned heel because it requires less concentration (and hence can be done while watching tv, in a movie theatre, or when pulled in and out of my purse and requires no counting etc) and I like them…

  1. Wow, I’ve never seen that solid colour Austermann stuff before! Did that come from the Purl? It might become something new to look for in sock yarn solids…
