It's fabulous. I'll be honest. I *hated* the magical knitting series. Mobius, no thank you! New ways to knit gussets and sculpt socks, fabulous. If you're a sock knitter and are interested in mixing things up, this is a book for you!
So, umm... I found some Jitterbug. I've been looking at this colorway for months-- and then I noticed that they changed their formula to a thinner yarn. Sold! I swiped up the original thickness the moment I noticed the difference because I wanted the thicker one. I've certainly hit critical mass for sock yarn. Must stop buying sock yarn!
Wednesday night, Deepa placed this in my hot little hands.
It's ooh, soo much better in real life. Kauni, fabulous. Absolutely gorgeous stuff. Just so you know I'm not completely mad, 1/2 of these skeins will be delivered to another knitter tonight!
I decided against the sedate blues and the absolutely gorgeous Princess Line sweater design. I'm taking the advice of you, dear readers, and have decided upon something completely different. No, I'm not going to knit Ruth's fantastic design. For the past few weeks I've been plodding through as many Alice Starmore patterns that I can find... and I think I found a winner. Of course, the search made me change my mind yet again. I'll explain all soon.
