When yarn makes you smile

I recently started another pair of socks, just a simple rib pattern from the awesome book Getting Started Knitting Socks. (I highly recommend this book for anyone new to sock construction.) I picked up a skein of this yarn from my LYS having never used it before. I liked the combination of blues, ranging from dark navy to medium royal to bright turquoise (with a variegated strip in between). I didn’t realize until I started knitting that it formed perfectly balanced skinny stripes on the leg. Fabulous!

Now I just need to make sure I don’t get a case of second-sock sydrome. One of these days I will learn two socks on two circs. But first I need to knit a pair of socks that actually fit!*

*My last pair came out just fine, except a size or two too large 😦
