acrylic baby... this is a far cry from the yarn used for the original sock in the pattern which is Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino...it's definitely not a sock I would use in a shoe.. it has a weird stretchiness about it... but it's soft and the pattern is fun to knit and as far as the use .. I think it will be a nice sock for sitting on the couch and watching tv or knitting.. I have no idea how it will wear or if it will get stretched out of shape eventually.. I'll let u know.. I grafted the toe and I'm ready to cast on sock #2.. I don't think I will everchoose to knit another sock with this yarn ..unless desperation hits me again.. I hope it never does..













































There was a small bit of progress yesterday on the scarf/shawl.. corner B is now successfully turned.. I'm going to work on it a little more today.. unfortunately for the shawl I have the itch to spin.. I have for a few days and put it off to work on my WIP's . Some birthdays are coming up and I need to whip up a couple birthday presents too.. go fingers go.. knit faster.. I wish the little knitting elves would visit me during the night and work on some of my projects (^_^)

I would have never guessed that was acrylic by just looking at the pictures. It looks so pretty!

I feel your pain, I wish I could knit faster. There are so many things I want to work on, but just not enough time. Good luck with knitting all the gifts!
