This week in knitting...

So I made my first Knit Picks, sock yarn and dye your own yarn purchase all in one order this week!

I've been getting their catalogue for quite some time now, but never ordered anything. Jana, one of my knitting partners in crime, loves them so I thought I'd give 'em a shot. I'm so excited to knit my first pair of regular socks. I have no idea what colors I'll dye the yarn but I know it's quite likely it'll end up being a ball of brownish purple ick by the time I'm done with it but I don't care, I want to play!

Of course, two days after I order online, I get the new catalogue. I'm afraid to look inside because I already want those purple and green socks that are on the cover! I have got to stop buying yarn and start figuring out what I'm going to do with all of the stuff I'm making (or should I say, planning to make). I feel like I have enough to open my own shop at this point!

I've seen a lot of people dye yarn with Kool Aid and it seems to work really well. I bet you'll do fine. The only thing is you know sock knitting is addicitve. I think you're going to like it, it's really, really fun.
