I bought a couple hanks of yarn while I was out visiting Dena.
What can I say? It's a tradition and I HAD to do it.
This is just Cascade sock yarn, nothing special and not too expensive but I liked the colors.
I'm not sure what this orange one is for, but I loved it. I bought orange yarn once before for a pair of socks for me but when I started knitting them, my husband claimed them for his own. Since he so rarely wants anything I knit, those first orange socks became his.
These will be mine . . . well, maybe. Most of the socks I knit end up as someone else's.
This yarn is more blue/green than this photo shows. It was pretty and I liked it.
It is going to become a pair of Anna Zilboorg's A Beautiful Necessity socks. The pattern is available from Blue Moon Fiber Arts - finally, after a very long wait.
These socks can be knit plain or embroidered and I think I am going to embroider them.
And blooming in my garden for fall - my piresea passiflora. It's long been one of my favorite and I'm so happy to see it blooming!
