Noro!!!

Happy Holidays!!!

It has been fah-evah since my last post... but all of that is about to change. It is official... I no longer work for someone else. I am back to working for myself, and it feels great!

Along with this new sense of freedom comes more time to knit! Yay!! I have already started on a pair of socks. I ordered the new Noro sock yarn from The Loopy Ewe last Wednesday and it was at my door Friday. How is that for customer service! So anyway, I went to a dinner Saturday night and casted on as soon as I finished the course.



Here are the socks. The 2nd is almost complete, most likely will be finished tonight. The yarn is interesting, though. It feels like the worsted weight Noro but just sock weight and knits up wonderfully on sz 1. It still has the thin/ thick slubs in the yarn. When I finish, I will give the yarn a good soak and see how it blooms. The color is 95 and it was a total accident that the colors matched up that way! i will have enough yarn left over to knit a pair of anklets :).


Happy Knitting!

Hey Lady,

Great to hear from you! How are you doing? Have you totally healed? I so long to work for myself, but unfortunately I can't afford myself, lol. Til I can, I'm on the quest to find the most perfect organization. Anyway, I'm totally loving your noro socks. They look so dang on good, as far as the striping sequence. Lucky you. Do let us know if it softens consierably when washed.
