Well! I NEVER!

...have had 3 pair of socks on the needles all at once!
But last night, sick to death of the Blue Ox Tweed (it's soooooooo boring, it's so splitty, it's so NOT tweed!), I cast on for this:
DD gave me this lovely Northern Lights colorway of Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn last year for my birthday...she bought it IN VERMONT...at CTH! I specifically asked for this colorway...and I've allowed it to marinate for a year. It was time. I wanted the luxury of CTH in my fingers...

And Miss Muffin is modeling so sweetly, that you might fail to notice that the dark yarn is sitting on - bamboo circs!

Wendy recommended the Hiya Hiya bamboo circs last week in one of her posts, and I immediately saw that the price was 2/5 less than the Crystal Palace bamboos which were the only ones I'd seen to date in the 16-inch length. I like CP needles, but not their price. Hiya Hiya's 3/5 of the cost including the shipping was intriguing and I like these needles very much.

Now...I won't go so far as to say that if Knitpicks would make the Harmony's in a blonde wood combo that I'd look the other way and stay with the Hiya Hiyas. But...they are really nice and since Knitpicks hasn't made the move yet? I'll live happily with these till they do (if ever).

But I surely do hope this is the last pair of socks I put OTN till at least 2 of them are done!

I'm a needle junkie and I jumped right on those Hiya Hiyas right away. The price and point can't be beat, so I bought bunches.

Needle junkie sounds wrong, but you know what I mean. Ha-ha!

What's NOT to love about Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn? What color way is this? It's "purty"!

I can see why you would prefer a new, cherry-colored sock to your dull not-tweed...

Ah, yes, the lure of knitting something that actually feels good during the knitting! I wholeheartedly support you (besides which, the yarn is gorgeous). I can't wait to hear how those needles work out, too.

Three pairs of socks at once? Oh you are wanton and loose in your ways. ;-)

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
