Lornas Laces Sock

Lornas Laces Pinstripe - 1 sock almost finished

STILL loving this yarn and this sock!

I've already swatched (and then frogged) some additional sock yarn I purchased on Tuesday and it's delicious to knit with as well. I think it wants to be little anklet socks for me someday:

Claudias Handpainted Yarn - Fingering Weight - Sherbet
Claudia's Handpainted Yarn - Fingering Weight - Sherbet

And more sock yarn I couldn't pass up:

(All new yarns purchased at Twisted Yarns in Spring, Texas)

If you're reading through Bloglines, this is just a heads-up that I've added a few new blogs to my sidebar along with a cute button and link to Christine's "Pointy Sticks" Podcast. Remember - no iPod is required to listen to a podcast - just right-click and save the file to your hard drive and listen! Christine does a good job covering the local knitting scene (Houston area) as well as the zeitgeist of the entire knitting blogosphere.

There's so much bubbling beneath the surface that I can't write about here. However, in spite of this being a difficult time of year for me, I'm very hopeful about the future. I'm willing to adapt and be flexible -- I'm good at that, but I still feel that I need to be alert and vigilant. Although trouble does come and always will -- the biggest blessings I've ever received have come disguised as distress and tragedy. In light of this, I was reading a wonderful blog entry about self-absorption a few weeks ago (I followed a link from Molly's blog). It was such a timely read then and I found myself wandering back to re-read it this morning (and I dare you to read the whole thing all the way through).

Mmmm, that Lorna's sock is gorgeous! I love me some Lorna's Laces, too. And the Claudia yarn? YUM!

That article really sucked, Janet.

;)

Me, the non-knitter, thinks Janet picks lovely yarn. The word delish is definitely appropriate for that mango sherbet-colored stuff! Gorgeous yarn!

PS: I think Gaucho = Latte, but when you rag roll Nomadic Plains over it, it's not so latte anymore!

I loved the article, thanks for linking it. I love the yarns you have picked out. Thinking about you sweetie. ((hugs))

Thanks for the link to that article - it IS timely indeed! But enough about me - back to your sock yarn ;-)

As I said on Flickr, I LOVE the way the LL is knitting up! GREAT JOB! (not that you need my validation *s*)

I loved that post of Danny's too. Hope that things are looking up for you!!

I have looked at, touched, and carried that same color of Mountain Colors yarn around the store before, but it hasn't made it home with me. Yet.

It sounds like Danny's post is a good read, I will have to check it out this afternoon when I can focus on it.

I copied that blog article to read later - thanks!
