Bought Lorna's Laces for the 1st time!
I just had to share that!

I went to lunch with a friend from knitting group and we hit up 3 yarn shops today! What an afternoon of fun! I really wasn't going to buy anything, but one shop had just gotten in Lorna's Laces for the 1st time and I couldn't resist. I got the sock yarn to make myself some more sockies!

OHHHH Im ALL excited now! I have some on order from Chix.... I've wanted to try some DK socks. Apparently, however, Lorna's takes FOREVER to ship. I ordered it 3 weeks ago. :(

I bought some of the Shepherds sock yarn by Lorna's Laces (back in the day...when I was still ordering.....) and I couldn't BELIEVE the differnece in the feel of the socks than say--the , well, less pricey sock yarns I'd been using. They were SO soft and the yarn just almost knitted itself!! My daughter-in-law was so happy with them. I'd made her a pair of socks with some self-striping I'd found at Michael's--can't remember the name-think it was made by Lion Brand-but there was all the difference in the world. The LL socks were SO cuddly! I am working on a pair now from yarn I got from KnitPicks lasy year that is part cotton and part nylon--I didn't think I'd like it at first, but it really does nicely and it's stretchy--feels great, and will be cooler for summer. I LOVE knitting socks!!
