As some of you probably already know I broke my yarn diet quite a while ago. While it is quite pathetic I couldn’t go 4 measly months without buying yarn I think I broke it for some kickass yarn. A little while ago Artsygal started offering sock yarn and as a fan of her laceweight I just HAD to get some. I fell in love with the one she called Tartan, it reminds me of the Black Watch tartan. And I have very fond teenage girl memories of sighing over the Black Watch whenever they were in town… (don’t mind me while I travel back in time to when I was 16)

Then there was the pattern to use, I wanted something that really showed off the wonderful colors but didn’t get lost in the dark yarn. Then I remembered the Brenda Dayne Pembrokeshire Pathways pattern, yet another British element to these socks. It was on my list of socks to make one day even though it was cuff down.

Better pics to come when I have some daylight but I was so excited to get these finished I had to post right now.

I’ve got some Tofutsies that will be making it’s way onto the needles next.

In other news I got some undyed yarn from Wool2Dye4 today. I ordered on Saturday and it made it to me from VA to WA in less than 2 days! Just amazing. I picked up some bamboo/wool yarn and some licorice twist. Both should be interesting to dye up. Between the package today and the two big skeins of Bare my SP sent me I am set for one fun dyeing weekend. I already dyed up the rest of the silk hankies-will post about that tomorrow if I can.
