Today I finally got my yarn fix. I met Karen for lunch (mushroom and spinach quesadillas!) and some knitting at Knit Picky. I brought along my Miss Bab's Sock and Baby yarn and started Leyburn Socks. I absolutely adore these rich greens. This is my first toe up sock, and I'm excited about the idea of knowing how tall I can make each sock based on reaching the halfway point in the ball. I can't say I'm in love with short-row toes. They look nice when they're done but It wasn't terribly enjoyable knitting the second half and picking up double wraps. Maybe it will get less fussy with practice.

Karen also assisted me in a photo shoot for an upcoming pattern that will be available on the blog. Thanks a bunch, K!

I had soo much fun hanging out with you yesterday - I missed our yarn lunches the previous 2 weeks. Your sock is looking great! (and I'm always available for a photo shoot - can't wait to see the pattern!)
