Thanks for the welcome ladies. I love the sock bug and hope it never gets cured! I think I've figured out I like small projects that can be completed in a reasonable time and socks fit the bill, plus once one is made you just HAVE to make the second one otherwise you've wasted your time! So far I've only been using yarn from JoAnns or Michaels, mostly bought on sale in case I couldn't get in to it or made tons of mistakes. But I treated myself to a large ball of Regia, the same of Kertzer and a few little balls of Crystal Palace Panda Silk mix as a little Christmas present to me.
RJ you sound like a freestyle knitter? I do have a FB account but I'm never on there as it sucks all my time up, but thanks for the invite!
