Thinking about this, and realizing that soon everyone will be able to see my pitiful yarn stash (full of Lion Brand Wool-Ease, fun fur, and thrift store yarn), prompted me to splurge on some sock yarn from Etsy this morning. Also, I’ve nearly completed 3 projects since my Jaywalkers, and I don’t love any of them as much as I love my Jaywalkers. AND I’ve been thinking I need a small project to carry around to knit during those in-between moments. We ran some errands last weekend and at the last minute I brought the doll sweater I was working on and I ended up knitting on it for an HOUR while waiting around for T. It’s nice to have a small portable project you can carry anywhere – especially one that doesn’t require a lot of finishing!!
Anyway…. deciding on which yarn to get was agonizing! There are so many talented fiber artists out there! I searched “sock yarn” on Etsy and got almost 2,000 results! In the end, I decided to get some superwash Merino Wool from FearlessFibers:
“My name is Deb, I live in Oregon, I’m 42 years old and am just coming out of the haze of what might be called a full-blown mid-life crisis. In the past three years, I left a long-term relationship, found a new mate and married for the first time, ditched a long-term thriving career, bought a little orange convertible, and started my own yarn business. My life today is a complete 180 from what it was three years ago. I can’t recommend a mid-life crisis highly enough! Try it for yourself and you may find happiness and contentment that you never imagined.”
