Beaucoup de sock yarn

So here's the deal. I now own more sock yarn (in the house and in transit) than I can knit. Solution. Knit faster, knit more.

I've joined not one, but two, 2, sock yarn clubs. Ruby Sapphire on Etsy has a 6 month club and I happen to look at the Yarn Pirate blog just after she opened registration for her new club and got a spot. I've never even touched wool from either of them. And they both start in July. I'm just a little bit excited. Almost done the Jaywalkers!

My new obsession with socks

So here's the deal. I'm knitting Jade STR Jaywalkers for my mom, she needs to try it on, I don't think I can start the toe yet. I'm not sure if I like the wearablitly of them, they don't have much stretch. We'll see when she tries them on tomorrow. There may be a frogging in my future. I'm also knitting a pair of Go With The Flow socks from Interweave with some Fleece artist, I love them but they are for the SIL. She also needs to try them, but she doesn't know I'm making them, difficult. I have a sock yarn hoard, it's not quite a stash yet, but I'm getting there. I have some Charcoal STR and Trekking in some colour for Jer, I bought some mediumweight STR Pink Granite from ebay, and I just this morning got 2 colours of Lorna's Laces from Ebay. I'm bad.
