when worlds collide…

Self-Portrait TUESDAY!
*************************************
New Threads TUESDAY!

This pair of socks was supposed to be finished A Long Time Ago…

Don’t really understand why they went missing for months – Summertime? – Tedium?- Ignorance?

They started out around mid-March 2006 from some lovely Lorna’s Laces gleaned from a studio sale in 2003 (see June 19th entry) – proof positive there is no expiration date on w.o.o.l.

That's it second from the right amongst the other swag I got that day - the skeins on the far left made it into a pair of socks after months/years by last year’s Socktoberfest (hi Lolly! who’s now hosting a Green Sock Knitalong with the beautiful Maritza). The others are still waiting their turn – any suggestions for the Bumble Bee colourway??? ;p

I adore these socks – I’ve always adored the Lorna’s Laces sock yarn – but these are quite the midwinter pick-me-up!

Yum! Beautiful colors in a soft small gauge flirty yarn…

These skeins were what Kathy Kelly called Burnt Cookies – or *seconds* from the studio, but all I can see is that they are a little fraternal and had occasional pops of yellow.
