Sock Fever

Hobby Lobby was having a sale on their books and I picked up several. Judging from the titles (The Sock Journal, The Sock Calendar, Sock Hop, Christmas Stockings, The Knitting Stitch Bible), I think it's safe to say I've officially come down with sock fever. I'd been warned that sock knitting was addictive. How true! I'm tempted to cast on a pair right now, but I'll show some discipline and knit some other things first. Right now I'm working on some baby items (also addicting) and there is a lace shawl I'd like to cast on too. Soon there will be socks on the needles though. I can feel it. And now the action photo of the last pair I knitted. Remember I said I was going to get John to help me with the picture? Well, he was willing, but I decided not to interrupt his fishing. He has addictions too!

  1. Wow, I love these socks, these colors are so sunny and cheerful! And seeing all those books you got for yourself - yep, it is safe to say you're heavily addicted to sock knitting! Right on - it's a great addiction, ain't it?

  3. Oh, my gosh! Christmas in April! I'm addicted to knitting books. I want to go to Hobby Lobby, but I'm scared I'll spend too much money!

  5. Aww I'm so envious of your sock book acquisitions!! My Hobby Lobby NEVER has good books to choose from. I look every time I'm there. It seems like they just never restock their knitting supplies or books and just restock yarn.

    The socks. They're pretty. :)

  6. I love knitting books almost as much as yarn.

    I like the socks pictured too, nice colours.

  7. That Sock Hop book is one I have been looking at for a long time. That guy designed some nice looking socks! I have so many sock books though that I can't justify spending money on more, so I have been able to avoid temptation, LOL. Looks like you are going to have a lot of fun!
