Sock knitting is taking over the world it seems, everywhere people are knitting socks well the peoples whose blogs I have been reading anyway. I too have been knitting socks but only one pair at a time, until I visited CINDY'S BLOG and saw her feather and fan socks. I went through the WIP basket and frogged the toe up socks I was working on but I wasn't real happy with and voila I now am working on feather and fan socks too. I did a search and found many variations of feather and fan socks but I decided to do them 'my way' I will write the pattern up when I am finished so that I can add mine to the growing list of patterns available out there for these socks.
I also discovered something else on Cindy's blog that made me very excited, there is a new on line yarn store YARNS ON LINE AUSTRALIA and they sell Brown Sheep Lambs Pride, yippeeee!! I had been chasing this yarn last year and found it was going to cost an arm and a leg to get it here to Australia, as unfortunately most overseas yarns do, unless you can buy them off ebay using PayPal. The colour range for Brown Sheep Lambs Pride is huge and it comes in both worsted and bulky or 10 and 14-16ply for us Aussies. So a big thanks Cindy for that, DH may not agree he he.
