Summer of Socks #3

Summertime Roll Socks

I had forgotten how fast sportweight socks knit up. I've got to dig through my stash for some more because these made a great travel and reading knit.

I was delighted to discover the arrival of the new Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn at our LYS today. The colors are amazing... so many to choose from and, like most Noro yarns, the color scheme can look totally different depending on which color is on the outside.


Today I felt like playing it safe. Plus I love the beiges and know it will go with so much. Someday. When I knit socks with it.

I picked up the Knitscene primarily for Wendy's Opulent Raglan. I love the cabled front and flared sleeves. But I won't be knitting it until my summer of socks and lace is complete. Most likely.

My queue is growing rapidly as I wait out the summer of socks too. Why oh why do I join these things?!
It seems I am wired to want to do the opposite of what I am supposed to be doing.

I love Wendy's opulent raglan as well. She does such great patterns, huh?
Summer will be over soon and you'll be able to knit it!

Happy Birthday! It's great to have friends that share the yarn love and take you yarn shopping for your birthday. Wildfiber is in the middle of their summer sale too. Hope you have a wonderful celebration.
