I Don't Even Eat Sweet Potatoes.

However, I really did fall in love with this colorway - Sweet Potatoe Pie.

Kind of hypnotizing, isn't it?

Pattern: Spring Forward Socks by Linda Welch as published on Knitty.com Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino - Colorway: Sweet Potato Pie Needles: Knitpicks Harmony DPN's in size 1 Started: July 8, 2008 Completed: July 12, 2008. Note: This was a mill end, so I can't complain too much about the condition of the yarn (kinda iffy in some places), however I do wish the colors were a little brighter in the finished item. The pattern however was spiffy as all get-out. Quickly memorized and quickly finished.

Sigh, TLE....do you suppose I'll ever get some more Wollmeise? I know I completely missed an update on her website last week.

This is my last week of peace and quiet, after next Sunday, Ozzie will be returning home. Gulp. Do you suppose I will have to re-potty train him?

I mailed some yarn-ends and a blanket square today.


The wanderers are home from Amherst - they had a great time. They won 2 out of their 5 games (actually, much better than they expected), and learned a lot about how to improve their game.

I started my fourth pair of SOS '08 socks today. Heaven help me.

Comments:
Those aren't even colors that normally appeal to me, but they sure made pretty socks! I can't believe how lucky I was to win Wollmeise - I would NOT have the patience to lurk at TLE to get a chance to buy some.

Congrats to the "wanderers"!
 
Really pretty socks. I only have the camper home as the worker left again. So it's only hal a house. I'm lonely.
 
Very cute socks. Good job!
 
Yum, sweet potatos. The yarn looks pretty yummy too! Nice pattern for it.
 
I love sweet potatoes, and those are pretty socks!
 
Hey! Got your awesome socks today!!! They are so good I can't believe your donating them. They are beautiful! I have them in a safe (dog-free) zone until shipment in Sept. Thank you so much.

ps. Love that Sweet Potato Pie!!
 
Cute socks! Not much of an orange fan here, but they're terrific! : )
