Socks!

Knitter's Review has just reviewed 4 new sock knitting books. Socks are so much fun to knit. There are an amazing amount of patterns out there.

I've got lots of sock yarn and I'm closing in on getting everyone of the sock books published on my bookshelves. I am currently a member of two sock clubs (soon to be three).

You might recall that I asked about sock clubs recently. Only a few responded so I don't have any great insight into your thoughts.

In June, I got to meet Judy Ditmore of Interlacements Yarn. We got talking about sock yarn and wonderful colors and sock patterns and knitting from the top down or toe up and circular sock knitting or dpns and such. Guess what?! She now has an Interactive Sock Gang that just got posted on her sight. The details look fun. I get to pick what weight yarn I want. Nice variety and a reasonable price. I'm going to investigate some details. I want to help with the blog and such. Wouldn't that be fun?

I'm working on some socks right now in Toasty Toes. I'm test knitting a pattern and should start working on these a little more aggressively, don't you think?

We plan on going out on the boat tonight for some fishing. I'll go and probably take the socks then. Pictures to follow!

The Vogue one might be interesting. I'm looking forward to Cat Bordhi's (sp?) new one -- supposed to have some new construction techniques!

Doesn't the sound of your needles clicking scare all the fish away? :-)
