I am talking to myself in the blog'o'sphere. No matter, I'm not here for the crowd :)
So, I'm thinking I might take a dive into sock knitting with a few tidbits from Nancy Bush... Knitting on the Road and Knitting Vintage Socks, which can be had for a combined price of $27.82. I really like the idea that these books are spiral bound... should help it stay open. Plus, it seems every blog I frequent has many good things to say about these patterns.
But being a sock virgin, I'm wondering if I should try a free pattern first (like this toe-up version). But I'm more interested in something fun like Monkey on knitty. Of course before I venture into the world of sock knitting, I need to acquire some very skinny dpns and/or circulars, as well as some very skinny yarn. Most of my stash acquisitions have been in the worsted or bulky weights (discounting the Isabella yarn, of course).
I think I'll hold onto my bucks and see about getting some (fairly inexpensive) knitpicks yarn and hunt down some good quality dpns and circulars in the US1 - 2 range... yee haw!
Well, I think I have neglected the job long enough. Later!
