And So Vacation Comes To An End . . .

It's been a great vacation from work! And having several snow storms made staying in and spinning and knitting even easier!

I did make one purchase this week. I'm going to be showing two co-workers the Magic Loop method for knitting socks and I needed to get some new yarn to use for demonstration purposes!



It's Sockin' Sox by Plymouth Yarns. I love the color. I think it will make a great pair of vanilla socks!

I finished spinning up the green merino. Now I've started on this beautiful cream merino fiber. I plan on plying the two together - can't wait to see how it turns out!




I'm on Tier 6 of the Market Bag - I'm just flying through this project - it is tons of fun!

That yarn does look nice! I love it when the weather makes it nicer to be indoors!

oooh I just want to reach through the screen and roll around in that merino - or possibly to eat it - it certainly looks edible enough :]

What size needles do I need? I feel that I must purchase them in order to start the socks. Addi's are on backorder.....so bummed!
