Did anyone else have the fascination with Agates that my sister and I had as kids? Outings and camping trips and summer vacations were spent looking for the coolest looking Agate. I would have bought this colorway just for the name. (I don't see the color on the website, so this may have been a sock club offering.) Now, looking at it in it's knit form, I definitely see the Agate-like tendencies.
I watched Titans and Steelers play football last night and I knit half a sock. (Umm, in between flipping over to Project Runway - how about those Minnesota boys?) Now that NaKniSweMoDo is winding down, I'm definitely picking up the sock mojo again. I think my family is expecting a basket of socks again at Thanksgiving - I may need to ramp up the sock knitting into high gear.
By the way, SIL has made a full recovery from her ER visit two weeks ago and was very happy to receive her new socks. She is going to visit a specialist today to see if she is eligible for an allergy shot program.
Love the socks! Would like to order a big basket for Thanksgiving too :)
Am REALLY thinking of trying those square needles to see if that helps alleviate the wrist issues...
My brother and I used to look for agates all the time. They're so weirdly magical! Nicely interpreted in the yarn.
I hope your SIL qualifies, seems like a near death exp. should count for something, right?
Sure hope this yarn is released to the general public, the colours are spectacular!
