Now my purchasing activities will probably go dormant for another six months.
On the other hand, I have nearly finished my first Slippin' Stripin' Sock. Just finishing up the toe shaping. The toe of this particular sock is solid green, matching the cuff. I didn't think the hand spun merino singles would wear very well in the toe. With any luck, there will be sufficient green yarn for the second toe.
The "boy socks". Just a plain 2x2 rib pattern in Trekking XXL. I really wouldn't have picked this yarn for SockBoy. I think it's pretty yarn, but much more brown and purple than I thought he'd select and he said he thought it was too boring!!
The yarn for me. The yarns on each end are a lot more purple than the photo shows, especially the yarn on the right. That's really a brilliant royal purple with nothing blue about it.
