Socks are quite easy Janis, I went from dishcloths to socks with nothing inbetween! Like anything, they just take a bit of practice.

Thanks Brenda. I've got a really pretty skein of sock yarn, I just haven't gotten the courage to try yet! Dish cloths are safe and quick and easy, lol

Be brave! You can do it! If the skinny needles and yarn scare you, try a pair in thicker yarn first. They'll go faster, you'll learn the new techniques, and you'll have warm house socks to wear slipper-style. Get your sock mojo going!

Look at it this way.... prior to June of this year you weren't knitting at all. Now you are. Bet you never thought you'd be the dish cloth queen either. Now you are.

Give it a go, you never know until you try.

Thanks for the great photos of your yarn and sock! You're sure right...this yarn is fantastic. I really like how the colorway is distributing itself. Reminds me of the subtleties of MadelineTosh yarn. I'll have to look into this Cascade Heritage Paints.

I get so confused about the new handpaint yarns these days. Not sure which ones will stripe, which ones will pool, or which ones will look like your delicious sock.

Edited to add:

I found the yarn on WEBS. I think your color is "Forest", right? I put two hanks in my shopping cart!

Yes, it's Forest. If you haven't checked out yet Little Knits have that yarn on sale today, and the Heritage solid colours too, they're a great price.

Thanks! No, I haven't purchased yet! I've made a new rule for myself this past year: wait a minimum of two days before "checking out" in a shopping cart. For obvious reasons.
