Gone Yarn Shoppin'
I've been matched up with my Secret Sock Pal. Hooray. Now where did those other #1 needles go?
I haven't any sock yarn in my stash?! Now I've got an excuse to go yarn shopping. I'll keep it simple. Since this is my first pair, I'll go with some self patterning yarn and a basic pattern.
I surfed the internet to get an idea of what kinds of sock yarns are out there. So many to choose from. I also stopped by my LYS. I found the yarn I think my sock pal will really like and bought it.
I went surfing some more and bought got some yarn for my SP5 pal. She loves merino yarns. Just like me. I don't want my secret pals to figure out I'm the pal so I'll wait until the exchange(s) are over to post the pictures. So I can hug these yarns for a little while until I have to let them go. ;-)
