Your comment about some fingering weight being thinner than others made me think. I would love a chart or suggestions in some form for the various sock yarns about that subject. I didn't realize Lorna's Laces was on the thin side, but I know the new Noro sock is. What others are thin? And what fingering weight yarn is on the heavy side such that you might want to go up a needle size?

Oh my gosh, I love me some osh kosh babies. There is just something about a drooling little guy in overalls that makes me just go gaa-gaa. And the hat! I'm melting!

I finished my socks from the yarn club. Love them!! They're on my blog on yesterday's post.


James is just sooooo cute! And he's looking very much like a little boy (rather than a baby even if he doesn't have any teeth yet). The Dream In Color Baby yarn is gorgeous - I had to order 2 skeins of the color 370 (the one shown above) for a shawl. Yum, Yum, Yum! For someone looking for sock yarn on the thicker side of fingering, I'd suggest the Panda Cotton. And it's very soft with a bit of sheen from the bamboo. It has become my favorite warm weather sock yarn (no wool at all). But you might want to get 3 balls for a pair of socks unless you're planning on really short socks or have really skinny feet like mine. I have very narrow size 7½-8 feet & worried about getting a pair from 2 balls. It's also very splitty but so nice it's worth it to me.
