Wet June Saturdays.......

A new yarn arrived this morning which is a fortuitous arrival as Summer of Socks 2008 starts today. I have to put aside all the half pairs until Sept! and knit as many socks this summer as I can. I am not going to only do that mind you and I didn't sign up for the competitons since I just couldn't compete with knitters who don't have full-time work/family/caring commitments or a combination of these and still enjoy the summer. So I'm signed up but for fun only. In the spirit of the special event starting however I will knit one pair with this lovely yarn first. Sunshine Yarns Sport: Superwash merino in Field of Flowers.






I have been making progress on these other socks. I am on the straight portion of the foot now :) I feel compelled to finish these, do you blame me.......

Gorgeous yarn and the Rivendell socks are beautiful too. I'm signed up for Summer of socks largely to keep myself busy until I'm fit for work again and for the fun of sock knitting.
