one sock, two sock?

Roza's are sweet,
Grumperina rocks.
I love this pattern,
it makes fabulous socks.

One down, one to go. Amazingly, I finished the first sock right down to weaving in ends and immediately cast on the second sock before "second sockitis" could kick in. I am done with the 3 x 3 ribbed cuff on the 2nd one. I love how the sock came out - it is so stretchy and hugs my foot. I love the yarn, Merlot by Yarntini - always a winner - so rich and yummy. BTW, have you checked out Yarntini's new shop? That is exciting, and another upside to being laid up - I realize that I can lay next to a laptop and randomly surf for yarn updates - so I have Hello Yarn and a skein of Yarntini enroute - mind you, my husband may not see the upside of this.

I also got my first taste of Wollmeise yesterday. I had ordered direct from Claudia a week ago and already this package of goodness made it's way to me. I had joined the Wollmeise-aholics group on ravelry sight unseen - well, I get it now. The yarn is gorgeous in person. I got two skeins of sock superwash in...

Rhubarber

and Wilder Mohn

and a 2000 yard skein of Grantapfel laceweight - sheesh I need to get back to work.

Your Rozinas are lovely indeed, great pattern and yarn combo. I also just recently received a shipment of Wollmeise and am in the midst of a major love affair!

I'm so drooling right now! Gorgeous! Rhubaber is one of my favorites. You'll have to let us know how it knits up.

And those Roza's are lovely!

Yippee!!!!
Careful with the laceweight.... If you're using a ball winder, it won't all fit into one cake.
