Sock Yarn Porn

So the sock yarn I ordered from KnitPicks came in today!!! Woo sock yarn. Now that I am in the midst of other projects and know that I will make myself finish the learning pair I started with that Moda Dea Sassy Stripes... it figures my order (why did I order if I wasn't ready for it? I don't know. I just NEEDED it. NEED I said! NEED.) would show up. It's ok. I can wait, I can put them away and covet them and let those lovely, beautiful skeins be my reward for finishing my Christmas projects and my scarf to keep me warm, and my learning pair of socks. Yeah. I can wait. Suuurrreee I can.

Above we have a selections of solids from knitpicks and 3 different types of their self striping. It should be interesting. Perhaps I'll make some arm warmers or something with one of them. Anyway, I digress. Back to the picture. The bluish black at the top left is really a nice normal gray. And the top right isn't really red, it's pumpkin. The self striping part of the picture came out ok colorwise, and so did the green. The solids will end up being for shmoo, as I picked earth tones, which he really likes. The stripeys will be for me and they will be what I use to make several pairs of those Geisha socks from Spun Mag, (see link in sidebar if you are really interested) so I can continue to wear my flip flops! As I have mentioned my flip flop love here before, I won't continue, but yes, I must have some Geisha socks.

droooooooool.

The rust-colored striping yarn on the right would look awesome as a pair of Jaywalkers, which are simple enough to go fast but look REALLY cool done up in self-patterning colors....you could join the KAL; it's a great way to hook up with other bloggers...it's at januaryone.com.

Looking forward to tomorrow!
