Anna was abroad all last fall. Before she left in August, she made a point of telling me that her previous pair of handknit socks was too small. I told her I would make her another pair when she got back – what color did she like? She surprised me with “black.”
But okay, sure, black! I got sparkly black to be on the safe side (thanks to Twisted’s awesome inventory at Sock Summit).
When I saw her again earlier this month, I said “I have some yarn to show you. Do you remember what color you said you wanted before you left?” and she said “PINK?” Uh-oh.
Luckily, the sparkles won her over. She happily tripped out of my house wearing her new socks today.
Maybe I should start one of those big thermometer thingies to keep track of how much of my Sock Summit yarn I’ve knit. Let’s see, I think I came home with enough for 10 new pairs. I’ve already knit the StitchJones Glam Sock, Kitchen Sink Dyeworks Luxe Merino Fine, Purl Up & Dye, and Dream in Color Starry. 4 down, 6 to go.
I haven’t started the Starry Deck the Ball yet, but I promise that I will soon. (you know who you are!) :)
