Have I mentioned that I love sock yarn?

My love of sock yarns is bordering on an obsession. There are so many beautiful colorways out there and you don't need to break the bank because socks don't require vast amounts of yarn! This is the first completed sock using the eBay merino wool from Britain with Kid Mohair carried along. It's just a simple 2x2 rib. I purled the sole to make it more comfy and it is the most comfortable sock that I've knit so far.

This sock-in-progress is Socks That Rock Titania which was one of their sock club colors. It's a plain stocking stitch with an Eye of Partridge heel for a little zip. Carmen will be the recipient of these socks.

Below are, left to right, STR Granite, which was in the last Sock Club package, STR Chapman Springs, STR Midsummer Night, Gypsy Girl Creations Iris, and GGC Blue Hawaii. I ordered the Chapman Springs and Midsummer Night directly from Blue Moon and the Gypsy Girl Creations ones from Stone Barn Fibers. These are all incredibly lovely pure merino sock yarns and were promptly shipped.

Yummy, this sock yarn is so amazing - all those great colorways, no one can blame you for getting a tad addicted, I'd say ;) The blue one on the first pic is so gorgeous too, great sock indeed!
