Hi...Beautiful new sock yarn, all my favorite colors!!!
Top of the pile currently on my needles: a pr of geometric "Lace Socks" w/ a very unique construction + heel. The pattern is @ knitting Universe (Knitters):
http://www.knittinguniverse.com/downloads I like to learn new things that challenge + these do. Will be a Xmas gift so "2 birds w/ 1 stone". There are 2 other patt versions as well.
Finally blocking/drying on the floor; a lace shawl made fr 7 sk Regia Bamboo Color sock yarn. Started as a "Kiri" but evolved w/ an extra 40+ rows of something different to make it larger. I smile everytime I look @ it...1st time ever that large + lace w/ that wt yarn. Socks are my main thing...both by hand + machine.
Many of you have been waiting on some colors of Dream in Color in Smooshy and Classy, and I wanted to let you know that we received a few shipments, bringing back most of the colors. Yes, color 150-Happy Forest is one of the Classy colors. I think many of you are knitting the February Lady's Sweater and I don't blame you- it's lovely! Looking at it makes me want to knit my first sweater. You must all be knitting it in Happy Forest, as that color leaves almost as soon as it arrives. I think I would choose color 480 though- I'm a dark blue gal.
Also, the popular Shibui Knits colors Orchid and Spectrum (as well as many others) have come back in stock as well. Those have been unavailable for a couple months now, but have now arrived again. I'm still waiting on a few of the solids, so if you were hoping for some of those, they are still unavailable.
