I've been knitting socks and ordering sock yarn like a mad person. Here's a pic of my newest sock knit out of Noro Kureyon Sock yarn, color # S185 on size 2 needles.
I'm knitting these socks toe up using Wendy Bernard's sock pattern using the toe patch. I've also finished a pair of sock for my sweetie. These are Knit Picks Essential Tweed on size 2 needles (I knit most socks on 2's) in the color Marina.
The only thing I have to say about this yarn was, I hate tweed. It's not really the yarns fault; I just didnt realize how much I would hate knitting those itty bitty little flecks of color. I would have liked it more had it been a plain yarn; no tweed. I know this next time I order yarn from Knit Picks.
Here's a few pics of sock yarns I've ordered from Knit Picks. The first one is called Gelato. Pretty!
Here is Alexandrea...
I also order from Duet Sock yarn from The Loopy Ewe. It's called Brownie Girl. I love the colors and the little mini-skien to make cordinating toes and heels. Isn't it cute??
So I think I'm pretty much set for the next few months as far as sock yarn goes. What say you, dear readers?
