Learn...

That's what I've done.

The Duet socks in So Chic are complete.

I was really nervous about running out of yarn, so I made these socks fairly short. By the end, I found out that all my nervousness was unfounded, and there was a ton of sock yarn left over.

This news doesn't help me for this sock, but for the next pair, I will be making them much taller.
I love this yarn. It is so soft!


I think my work malaise is getting to me, so I've been indulging in a fair amount of retail therapy lately. You can look forward to seeing some hand painted yarn off of Etsy.com, as well as another Duet color that I ordered right from A Swell Yarn Shop. I hadn't seen this color before. I think it's going to be great.

I'll be sure to post pictures as soon as I receive it.

Oh, and sometime soon I'll share my progress on the Bubble Pullover from Knitting Nature. I'm on the fourth of eight pentagons.

Excellent - I'm looking forward to seeing your online purchases. I'm cut off. I think my boyfriend is going to start blocking certain sites, all yarn stores.

I like your duet socks. The colours are great.

I love your socks. They look just like Neopolitan ice cream. I've only recently seen that Duets yarn. It looks yummy!

I think we must be on the same wavelength. I'm always worried I'll run out of yarn - though I have big giant feet and you have little ones. I've also been doing my fair share of retail therapy - I even found some Sweet Georgia I had to buy.

I believe the change in the weather will cheer me up but I've got to get some of this yarn knit. It's starting to call to me in my sleep.

I love how duet socks have the matching solid heel. Very pretty colors indeed. Great work! Can't wait to see all your etsy purchases. :)

Those are gorgeous socks Chrissy! I love them much. Sometimes a shorter pair is nice. I keep telling everyone at work that my give-a-damn is broken and the parts are backordered. Sounds like you're waiting for a new give-a-damn too!
