I finally posted my first sock pattern!!!!! Woo Hoo!

I enjoyed making these socks. They were a quick knit. I only knit one for a display at the LYS and printed the patterns up for give away. I am workin on a pattern for a fair isle usin 2 colors with Regia Tweed and Regia Avenue Color. It's working out really well. I'm hoping to have it done in a week or two.


When I called Deb at the yarn shop last week she told me that the Mountain Colors sales rep. was there. So I hauled ass went down to accost chat with him. Oh my hell. I ordered admired a lot of georgeous yarn. I had a blast. I also noticed they have some new colorways. I love that sock yarn. it's really soft and knits up nice. I have only knit up one pair but have a boat load ready to go. I just need to finish up my WIPs and I'll have some needles ready.
