This is what the weekend was like:

_DSC8987Feet up, pajamas on, kittens installed, woolly socks present and accounted for.  Ah, about those socks.  Let’s see if we can get the darling Levon out of the way (he steals the show after all) and take a closer look at them.

_DSC8985Yes, yes the threats worked, the socks are done.  That’s Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label in the color Olive.  I’m in love with this for a sock yarn.  Firm, round, smooth, big enough you can work at 7.5 spi and still get sturdy socks.  Yes, you’ll likely need two skeins to make a pair of socks, but as far as I can see, that’s the only downside.  Some day I’ll launch my campaign to get yarn companies to make 6oz skeins of their dk for sock makers, but until then, I’ll just buy two.

Oh, and just so no one can say they missed it, tomorrow is the last day of the Thanksgiving sale.  Details over here if you think you might need something!
