WOW! Entry for January

We're having a heat wave. It was above freezing today. In fact, the snow was melting very quickly. Large glomps of it were falling out of the trees. One tried to murder me when I walked down to the mailbox to check for mail. Stupid snow!

Thankfully, we did not get whomped last night as predicted. We woke up to about 3 inches of new snow. We get another break until Friday night. I'll take it!

Just before leaving for the cruise I joined the WOW! Sock Club (see side bar). Each month we're supposed to go into our stash and find a skein of sock yarn, take a pic of it, and post it on our blog. We don't have to actually knit it up. Just show it off. As sock clubs go, I figure that's pretty darn easy to do. Here is my first entry. This has been in my stash for about 5 months.

Sublime colorway

I really like Fearless Fibers sock yarn. My fingers love the feel of it. They are happy when I'm working with it. It comes in so many luscious colors too. I've already wound it into a ball and started a pair of socks for the daughters boyfriend last night. I'm taking a clue from Marguerite's blog. She's knitting a pair of socks in 7x1 rib. I really like how they look. Nice and masculine, yet dressy enough Frank can wear them to work.

Well, the knitting needles are calling.

Have a great evening.


  1. Beautiful yarn - love the colors. I have some Fearless Fiber in the stash, but haven't used it yet - but good to hear that it is good!

  2. Those colors are beautiful. I want some! I don't need some, but I want some!
