is it an obsession? perhaps since in the last couple of weeks i have added 11 hanks of sock yarn to a stash that already has enough sock yarn for at least 10 pairs. i am not sure, but one of my recent purchase(s) of sock yarn has spurred me to work on an old wip...the jaywalker.
it's been sitting on the back burner for a while with a case of second sock syndrome, but that didn't stop me from starting another sock (notice i said sock and not pair of socks?). it's a basic 5x1 ribbed sock with a 3x3 ribbed cuff, i am using some panda wool by crystal palace.
the panda wool is 46% bamboo, 43% wool, 11% nylon and it's great to work with and it has a nice loft to it. back to my obsession...i picked up four hanks of sock yarn at stitches west, i guess that's my project plan for this year - nothing but socks? not a bad idea to phase out store bought socks for handmade ones...of course, this brilliant scheme will change once malabrigo march starts.
