Two down

Two to go! Finished one sock for CIC (the smaller one lying flat), and one for me. I'm really pleased with the way mine is turning out. It's a simple knit/purl design, but I like the way it works with the S.O.B. colorway. I don't like the way handpainted yarns will often pool in the gusset area, and this design does a nice job of preventing that. I'll probably write the pattern up & include it with the yarn. I'm already poring over my stitch books & old pattern magazines looking for more patterns to try!

Business has been brisk lately, and I haven't had a chance to dye any yarn for a while. I am hoping to get a chance this week to dye the yarn I need for a vest I want to make for myself. Every time I think I'm going to have a quiet few days, the phone starts ringing. Not that I'm complaining! If that phone doesn't ring, I don't have any $$ to buy yarn. But just one quiet day would be nice.
