Birthday Yarn! April 14, 2009

For my birthday last week I requested a skein of green yarn to knit socks.  My mom did not fail to deliver!  She bought me a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy Sock Yarn in Spring Tickle.  It’s gorgeous and I’ve already c/o for socks.  Yesterday it was between “Monkey” and “Baudelaire” by Cookie (you can find them both at Knitty).  The deciding factor?  Mostly the fact that my yarn was closer to what was required for “Monkey” than “Baudelaire”; but I am determined to have knit both in the future!

I’ve never done a twisted rib before and was worried for the first 2 rounds that I was doing it wrong; but of course as with all things it take a little while for the pattern to emerge and for you to quit doubting yourself.  🙂  Last night I only knit the cuff for sock 1 but tonight I plan on starting the lace pattern.  Pictures to come soon!
