And I am NOT allowed to go shopping, except for a charka and maybe a new McMorran Yarn Balance, at BSG. Do you hear me, guys? I am NOT! Allowed. To. Go. Shopping.

If you have any love for me, you’ll stop me.

Why? Because I just bought 6 balls of sock yarn and a book from Knit Picks. But, it’s for the K/S/C swap! I got three colours I KNOW AV will love (cuz she put them in her fav colour combos list) and a book that, erm, has been singing, oh, so sweetly (like Homer’s Sirens) to me for weeks – Here Be Wyverns.

I am so weak, I know. I also can use the rest of the sock yarn to make socks for my mum and sister (cuz the colours also go on their fav colour combo lists). And, I bought six balls of yarn – that’s enough for 3 pairs. Or, bloody well should be.

I’m planning on doing a Fair Isle band below the cuff (good practice before I tackle that sweater set!) and maybe a giant, honking cable down the middle. Sounds good to me.

About the Author fyberduck

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
