As I was given to understand that "sock yarn doesn’t count", I bought sock yarn.
From left to right you see purple Spirit Trail Fiberworks, green also Spirit Trail, black and pink is colorway Angela (it should be Good n Plenty though) from Gypsy Girl Creations and the sky blue is Maple Creek Farm wool/bamboo/nylon blend.
I’m going to play with the bamboo yarn first and make Monkeys as I think I’m the only sock knitter in the world that hasn’t made a pair. I’ve got that long cross-country flight to look forward to this afternoon, so I’m going to Monkey across the lower 48. See you on the left coast kids!
