Cure for the Itch

As it's November, and November is about to end, I had to buy some November sock yarn. I've figured some plan to ease my yarn hunger pains where I buy new sock yarn each month and in an attempt to avoid buying larger quantities. So far, I'm not sure it's working the way I planned...but I'm going to keep it up simply because it's fun.

So, today, I bought some Neighborhood Fiber Co.'s sock yarn in the Kalaroma Park colorway. I've actually been stalking this yarn. I've walked in and out of the yarn shop without buying it. Today though, today I just could resist.

The last time I bought sock yarn was in October for my Harvest Sock Pal's Synthesia socks. Which are, by the way, coming along nicely.

This picture doesn't do the colors justice. It's full of fall colors, beautiful oranges, brown, reds, greens and so on. I'll have it finished right after Thanksgiving. I have everything done for the swap except to buy one more little gift and finish the sock.

My fingers are getting very itchy these past few days. I'd really like to throw caution to the wind and just knit all day. Forget about papers and LSATs and such, and just knit.

Sometimes, I'm sure Ravelry is the best thing to ever happen to me. Sometimes, I'm afraid if its powers. My queue list is never-ending. And it keeps growing. Right now, I'm dying to knit Lady Eleanor from Scarf style. I saw a lady wearing hers at brunch this morning is Alexandria. I was staring at it so much to be on the verge of being rude, but I just couldn't help myself. And then my fingers started itching and the boyfriend had to take me to the yarn shop so I could figure out what color of Noro Silk Garden I'd like to ask for as a Christmas present.


I decided on number 244.
