Each year, I like to treat myself in some way. This year, I decided to join the Socks That Rock sock club. Every 2 months, the club sends out a skein of hand-dyed superwash merino & nylon, and 2 patterns that you can choose from. I had a few gauge problems with the first shipment, plus the colours are not ones I would usually pick, so a partly-completed sock is languishing on my coffee table. I have been more focussed on knitting some hats, scarves and fingerless gloves in preparation for winter in colours that I liked. However, the latest skein, received yesterday, is gorgeous.
