My pal, J, picked fab colors for my cloth and yarn! (I took the pic on one of my new dish towels for reference!) The chocolate is long gone, do are the candies, my hubby has stolen the espresso cup, there are notes in the sheep book and the markers are happily dangling from my cardi in progress. Yes, I know I haven't mentioned THE SOCK YARN. I am doing my best not to play with the sock yarn until I am done with my selted bag and the other pair of socks that I have on the needles. I need to finish the first pair. I am supposed to have them done for hubby's b-day on the 21st. This may not happen. I mean, how am I supposed to resist yarn that is named Peppermint Mocha? (yum.) I have found the pattern that I think I will use. It is the Errant Ankles Lace Socks from the Socknitters webpage. I really like the lacy-ness of the pattern and I hope it will stand up to the colorway of the yarn. I don't want plain socks, but I don't want really busy socks either! Hopefully next month I will be able to tackle this project! Thanks again J!
