If only I could stop knitting socks.

Ok, so here we have the completed Socks That Rock socks with the Broadripple pattern. I love them, love them, love them. They will be making an appearance at work tomorrow. I think they will go over well with my female coworkers who appreciate the art of a fine handknit sock.

And now here is the yarn I bought yesterday at the sock yarn sale at Mosaic Yarn Studio in Des Plaines. Oh what could it be? It's some Koigu sock yarn! Purchased at a 20% discount! I kept within my budget and I have $8.75 to roll over to next month. How grand!

After returning home from the yarn shop, I was in the mood to knit a new pair of socks. I have all this wonderful new sock yarn and could not decide what to do. So, Alex halped me wind the Koigu and with that, I was off. . . .

It's the Feather and Fan sock pattern from Socks Socks Socks. I like these socks because the lace pattern is four rounds and three of them are knit. And there is no purling. What a lovely pattern! I am loving it.

So, there you have it. This week is going to be a busy one. Work is going to be crazy because I have been given all sorts of weird projects like purchasing expensive lab equipment. No, no I would much rather just play with the expensive lab equipment, but I digress. After work there is much to do and the weekend is already filling up. It's like I have a social life. :) How I long to be sitting on the couch knitting. Oh well, at least I have the rest of this evening!

  2. Great socks! I like the yarn too. I know what you mean about the lab equipment. I hate when my boss asks me to "look into" a large purchase.
