I totally admire those bloggers who can write entertaining posts that tell us all about what is going on in their lives while at the same time having an actual theme, something that ties the whole thing together. I enjoy reading such blogs and I wish I could do the same. But alas, my posts, such as this post right here, are usually disjointed and kind of random, a paragraph about one thing followed by a few hits of the return key then a completely different topic. Because a bit of space is totally an adequate segway. Anyway, I'm about to do it again. And again and again.
The first two pictures are my toe-up socks, my first complete adult-size pair of socks (I'm not really counting the pedicure socks seeing as they didn't have toes). The yarn is ArtYarns superwash merino, worsted weight, I'm not sure what the colorway was called. I knit them on size 4 Addi turbos so the fabric was thick and totally squishy. They still fit into my shoes though, as I found out when I wore them to the wool fair on Saturday. I'm running short on time so I will post about the wool fair later. The third picture is actually a purchase from said fair, some dye-your-own sock yarn that I dyed with Kool-Aid. I had never tried it before and it was so cool. The picture is really blurry but the color is about right. Where are you, sun??
