a case of the mondays

i'm feeling very uncreative this morning, hence the bad title.
the colors are really off in this photo, unfortunately. i was in a rush this morning and it's getting increasingly dark when i get up. the sock is really more of a bright pinky-purple.

this is my first angee for the sock innovation kal. i'm using the hedgehog fibres merino/cashmere in fairy that i just got. (colors are much more accurate in the skein photo).

i accidentally grabbed my #2 addi turbos instead of #1s, and as a result the sock is too big for me. the lack of memory in the yarn doesn't help, i'm sure. so now these will be an xmas gift for my mother.

i hope to get a better picture because the colors harmonize really well and the socks just glow. i'm really happy with this yarn, though i don't think the socks will wear very well with normal use. they will be wonderful bed socks, though.

i learned that you can unkink addi turbo cords by steaming them. my 40in #2 needles were almost unusable but i was able to bring them back to life.


  1. The socks are beautiful! I love the design.

  2. Very nice! BTW, I use a hairdryer to unkink cords, and it works great.

  3. Oh wow. That's so bright it made me sneeze!
