i was flipping through the new knit picks catalog yesterday and saw this~ sock blanks!
it is a big knit rectangle of double stranded sock yarn that you can dye and then knit right from the sock blank, two socks at a time! perfectly matched, self stripping socks, no fuss! i have personally never been inclined to knit socks. i have knit baby and toddler socks but knitting skinny yarn on teeny, tiny needles until i have something that will fit an adult has never sounded appealing to me. but this is pretty darned cool. i think i will at least have to order some to dye for my sock knitting friends. and who knows, maybe a pair of my own socks will pop up on this blog...
but until then, my next project is this:
rusted root from zephyr style! i picked up some cotton fleece in a pretty pale green yesterday. i have a very special baby gift on my needles that is a day or two away from being finished, and then i am ready to get started.
oh, and the very best part? my yarn was 40% off! bliss!!
