Yarn envy @ 07:19 am

Current Mood: wistful

Man, I wish I could afford some of these yummy handpainted yarns, especially "Spring Sprung" & "Wildberry Pie". I spotted them today on colorjoy_feed. Gorgeous, but I can't see paying $20 plus shipping for a skein of yarn that *might* be enough for one pair of socks.

If I were buying gorgeous yarn like that, I certainly wouldn't make *socks* out of it - I'd want to make a scarf or a shawl or a vest or something that other people besides myself would see and be able to appreciate, and that wouldn't get dirty by being walked on!

Just my .02 cents, of course!

Might be able to get a hat out of one skein. I've just been on a sock kick lately. I was surprised how comfy custom-fit socks can be.

A "sock kick" - sounds appropriate! :)

I've never been one for handmade socks - my feet are too sensitive to the nubbier texture, I think. :)
