Fall Socks are finished

I finished another pair of socks. The Artisan Acres Lambkin socks in Corn Maiden are complete. Just in time for fall. I used size 2 needles. I really, really liked this yarn and the colorway. I liked it so much that I ordered two more skeins of it. Can't wait until it gets here.

I am still working on the Sunshine yarn socks in Wildflowers. I am ready to pick up stitches for the heel. Will have to post a picture in the next blog update. This yarn is thin and it's wierd switching from the Artisan Acre socks to this pair because of the weight difference in the yarn.

I couldn't resist buying more sock yarn. I got some from The Knitter's Edge: Trekking in colors 175 and 187 and Oneline Supersock (6 ply) in the Wellness II color 1199.

I also got Claudia Handpaints in Scouts Honor and more Prism Saki in Peacock.

I love the Knitter's Edge in Bethlehem. I have great knitting friends there and the owners and people who work there are great. We all enable one another, but we also support each other.

From the Loopy Ewe, I got Lorna's Laces in Zombie BBQ and Nightmare's night out plus String Theroy Caper Sock in Oban. More great yarns and colorways to knit up into socks.

I think my New Year's resolution will be no sock yarn for 2010 so I start using up some of my stash. What do you think?
