Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

YOSS 2011 January #1


If you remember, I joined the Year of Stash Socks to use up some of my sock stash.

One of January's socks is knitted using a worsted weight yarn. I haven't knitted any worsted weight socks yet (they are a bit warm for our part of TX). But my mom could use a pair.



So I have started "St Brigid's Carnamoyle Stockings" (rav link) pattern by Lahoma Jayne Nally-Kaye
Yes, more cables. But the cables are only on the front part of the sock. The back is stockinette. It should work up quickly as I'm using dpns US5/3.75mm and Lion Brand Wool.

January must be the month for cables.

Such pretty blue yarn, pretty pattern, and there's no such thing as too many cables, is there? All my guys love their worsted weight wool socks, and I love that they knit up so fast.

What a great idea! But I'd have to actually go through my stash and the reality of it might just be too much.

I love these. The color and the cables! These socks are going to be so pretty.

Beautiful blue yarn and a very pretty cable.
