Yes, she is! Sallee
is the one who convinced me that I could knit a lace shawl, so I now have both a completed Wool Peddler & Highland Triangle to keep my shoulders warm while I'm typing or knitting. Now Sallee is making a pair of socks and they look so neat (check them out on her blog!).. So after discussing the pros & cons of knitting socks - something that will wear out far faster than a sweater, a vest or an afghan - on line yesterday, the Spirits of Knitting either smiled on me or are having a huge belly laugh (I'll tell you which when the socks are done) as this morning at Meijers what did I find on the end cap of the yarn section but a Clearance
! This is what I brought home along with the spinach, the pork roast, the Blue Bonnet margarine and sundry other edibles:
Two skeins of Moda Dea Sassy Stripes in Crush for $2.40 a skein rather than the usual $4.95. Now to find a toe up pattern that will work. I'm hoping that I can knit one pair and get socks out of my system - after all, I did make that pair of worsted weight ones last year for the First Sock KAL and wasn't tempted to try another because I hated grafting the toes, but with a toe-up pattern will my fortitude stay strong or will I become addicted like others have?? Stay tuned..........
