On an Otherwise Dreary Day; Knitting Olympics

The Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock looks so promising against the dull and drab day.

I just got these skeins (in the Watercolor colorway) from Angelika's Yarn Store. If you have never ordered from her, you're missing out on the wonderful customer service that Angelika provides. I ordered from her on Saturday and received my package yesterday. Mind you, she's in Oregon and I'm in New York. She also sends samples and inserts and a free pattern. I also ordered size 2 40" Addi circulars so I can go from size 1 to 2 as I'm figuring out my gauge.

Leslie from The Silver Fork Saga graciously offered to be my training partner for the Knitting Olympics. We're both planning to conquer the magic loop to make some socks. I can't decide if I want to use my Lorna's Laces or the On-Line Supersocke. I think I better use the Supersocke rather than risk ruin to my first skeins of Lorna's Laces.

That is gorgeous yarn. I can't wait to see your socks! I'm starting to get excited about the Olympics endeavor... anything to take my mind off reading Robinson Crusoe. I wrote an email about patterns and such but realized you don't have an email button on your blog. Would you feel comfortable emailing me and I'll reply that way? ldgraff at Back to the stranded guy on the island...ugh. But think about all the time he'd have for knitting...
