My Man Wants .... SocKS?!

Yeah, that's right! I'm working on my first pair ever, and after i finish the one, he decided that he wanted to steal them. I'm using pretty expensive yarn (Austerrmann Step), i only got because i had a gift certificate. Of course, i didn't want to give them up! After looking at what seemed like a million skeins of hand painted yarn on, we didn't see anything he liked. It's not often he asks me to knit him something, so i wanted it to be special. I found a seller who sells tons of undyed natural fiber at the lowest prices i've ever seen. Stickchick had exactly what we needed!!!

Dye Your Own 100% Merino wool Superwash fingering wt. sock yarn in natural cream. Lovely and soft, this yarn is absolutely perfect for socks!
2 oz skein/approx 280 yards

I can't wait to get it!!! I'll post right away to let everyone know how it looks/feels/smells :-)

I'm a little more than halfway through BBBB, i should have it done by Sunday (i hope!).

My other ribbed sock is still on th back burner, and grandmom may get pot holders in the next couple of years!

The BBBB is coming along nicely! It might cut it kind of close, but I'm sure you can get it finished in time!

That Austermann Step is really nice. I'm making a mental note to pick some up for myself next time we head up to Woolbearers.

omigod, you are so brave with the sock thing. i have yet to try anything with fingers, thumbs, heels, or toes. have made many wristwarmers, those.

you gotta let me know how it goes...
