It was perfect timing –checking a project off my list, thinking about what to knit and then getting some really good sock yarn in the mail. Two new sock yarns to be exact and I cast on for both of them!
My petals package arrived on Friday and seeing as I had hardly a stitch on the needles, I started knitting the spirals of the hydrangea sock. This pattern really moved and I ended up finishing it late last night. I cast on for the second sock immediately after finishing the first (!) and in my excitement, snapped my first dpn. Poor rosewood needle. Luckily I’m obsessed with collecting needles and had an ebony dpn of the same brand and size to fill in until I get a replacement set.
More on the other new sock yarn tomorrow…
