Sock addiction? what sock addiction?
It's all my DHs fault... I SWEAR!!! He's the one that sent me across town to drop off some papers for a loan. It's not my fault that my fave LYS is on the way... and that I haven't been in there since November due to bridge reconstruction. It's also not my fault that she's selling/ closing and had great deals on sock yarn. It's also not my fault that she had some Bryspun dpns and some Skacel dpns that begged to come home with me... not my fault, not my fault at all. I'm not addicted, no way, no how.

BTW: the sock yarn is Scheeepjes Invicta {#1364, a grey/ blue tweed}, Dazzle Super Socks {#714, a teal/ white/ blue/ grey jacquard}, and a single ball of Lang JaWoll Jacquard {#0158, charcoal/ white/ grey/ fuschia/ burgundy wine}; the dpns are 9"-3 mm {2.5US} Bryspuns, and 7"-2.5 mm {1 US} Skacels[/b]

Nice stuff, Nicole! I am so glad I'm not the only addict around here. :XX:

It's not my fault that there are so many different kinds of sock yarn. I just have to try them all, don't I? I don't have an LYS near me, so I have to shop online. And my finger has a mind of it's own....sometimes it pushes the button that says "place order" without my even knowing...

Here's some Regia and some Lorna's Laces I just got. On order I have some Opal and some Jawoll...now if only I could knit 24 hours a day, I might actually get to use it all.

Lornas Laces.... :drooling: I just ordered some for me from Ebay...LOVE, LOVE IT!!! Then I just ordered from knitpicks yesterday....it's truly an addiction :rollseyes: I completely forgot about this BEAUTIFUL Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn that I have, as well as some Opal until I was looking in another box for something & saw them there...why, bc my sock yarn box is too full for them to fit in it & I had stashed these babies in another box! what a JOY it was to find :D As if I had just been yarn shopping....again

i think it looks like bubblegum! (that isn't the name i am sure....just what i think of when i see those colors.) i am ignoring it though cuz i really want it and i have a whole bunch of sock yarn i have bought and haven't even started using yet cuz i am trying to finish an afghan before i get toooo crazy with the socks.

The yarn is soooooo pretty!!!! I signed up for a sock class at my LYS. I knit socks on 2 circs, but I really want to learn how to make them on dpn's- I have a gazillion (ok, maybe not that many!) skeins of sock yarn just waiting patiently until I have the skills to do them justice...........

I LOVE knitting socks on dpns !! I have a video coming & several tutorials for knitting on circs, I want to give them a try, but I wonder if I will prefer circs or dpns :thinking: .....time will tell.....

That Lorna's Laces color is called sherbert....looking at it makes me hungry. Luckily, I can't eat while I'm knitting. :rofling:

Nicole, you'll have to post on how you like the Bryspuns. I love their single points and would love to buy some dpns.

It's not my fault I read so much about sock on the KH forum that I had to try a pair and have become addicted to knitting them and now I have to buy all kinds of sock yarn even tho' nobody wants my homemade socks.

I'll show 'em!!! (I just bought a skein of opal bumblebee at a ridiculously high price on ebay because it's discontinued and...RARE!!!) :rofling:
