back to basics


Into the Whirled...a new to me vendor I met at MSWF. 
I couldn't resist this skein...a second skein might've jumped into my bag, too...
...I see lemon, berries, and chocolate in this color...yum!

Is there a better plan than to knit a new sock from this gorgeous yarn? Nope.
Just a simple rib and stockinette pattern this time around...back to basics.

I love how your images and quotes always complement each other.

I see vanilla ice cream with berries in your yarn :-)

Mmmm, I always think of yarn colors in food colors, too!

Sounds like an excellent plan and I especially like the thought of the day. Have a great week!

That yarn is lovely - and sometimes a simple pattern is all it takes to make stunning yarn shine. Love the colors. gr

I almost picked up that very skein, and then put it down. I did manage to pick up a couple more of her things - such beautiful colors!
I love your sock!

Basic and brainless. You can probably knit those socks with your eyes closed.

I was so inspired by your Twisty socks that I threw my crochet hook (not too far)and grabbed my sock needles. I like your linen heel, too, so I'm working on that. It's my first time with linen stitch. And I LOVE the pattern!!!
