I started a sock!

Actually - I started TWO socks. We have a new sport weight sock yarn so I wanted to try it out. I LOVE IT!!!

I started this one with our fingering weight yarn (Celestial Cloud) in colorway "Winter Solstice". This yarn is soooo soft! But, being a slow knitter I am a big fan of a sock yarn that is a little bit thicker. But, this yarn is really nice.

I also started this sock in the sport weight yarn (Celestial Sport) in colorway "Mira". You can find both yarns on our sock page HERE. This thing is knitting up so fast I can hardly believe it. I have a new favorite sock yarn!

I'm doing just a silly slip stitch pattern on this one.

We shall discuss the heels tomorrow. I know you can hardly wait.
And a couple of quickie shop announcements for you.

- For each yarn and roving we have added an option for custom colors. This way, you can order your choice of yarn or roving in your choice of colors. This option is provided at no additional charge and orders will take 1-3 weeks. More information on custom colors is HERE

- There are lots of new yarn bowls on the site HERE

- There is some fabulous new roving HERE

- We have a new fiber club HERE - We now have a sock club, a roving club and a "not a sock club" for folks who want to be in a fiber club but are interested in yarn other than sock yarn.

- There are some GREAT DEALS on the discount page HERE (do I hear the word cashmere?)

- There is now a Knit Witch group on Ravelry HERE

Go check out the site - we are constantly making updates so if you see anything that isn't working or if you have any suggestions just let us know. We always like hearing feedback about the site and the products!!

Whew! After all of that you need a cute picture!
