My latest Amazon.com purchase arrived today, Favorite Socks - 25 timeless designs from Interweave Press. Just browse its contents and you'll want to knit every design in this book. They remind me of the amazing socks Grumperina designs/knits and who can argue with talent like that. I've only knit the most basic socks so this will definitely be a challenge. If I can actually get through both socks, it'll be a miracle. I have so many projects on the needles. I am absolutely focus-less and don't know where to turn first but that's part of the fun. I have to remind myself often that knitting is not a race.
Rhinebeck is coming soon and I'm thrilled to be going. I've been reading tons about spinning and dyeing and have been considering doing a little wheel research while I'm at the show. I'm also in touch with a few vendors for a circular sock machine. These antique machines are fascinating and cranking out a pair of socks in just a few hours is quite appealing to me right about now (see can't finish anything noted above). ;-)
