Ready to sock it to 'em!



Well, I finally got the yarn from the Yarn Yard (having b**gered off on holidays just after ordering it was not probably the best idea..) but it was worth the wait! Lovely brown, fawn, orangey shades - I do hope my sock pal will like it, she said she wanted browns!

And after a few false starts and unworkable ideas, I've decided to use Cookie A's Baudelaire sock pattern since it fits in terms of gauge, and I love the pattern!

Well I've got a few long flights and long waits in the next few days during my trip to the USA, so by the time I return later in the week, there will be either progress, or despair to report!! Keep your fingers crossed for the former!

hi Sockpal - this is my annual trip to Pittsburgh for a conference. I'm looking out of the hotel at the river right now! Yes, I've visited quite a few of your states, but all on business I'm afraid so my experience is very much hotels, conference rooms and airports. :-(
