I broke down and made a purchase of some sock yarn today. I have been making a sock out of Cherry Tree Hill Super Sport yarn and I adore it! However, it's been discontinued and I was so sad to hear that. I found someone who still had some stock left of it in colors I liked, and I splurged. I used the money from the sale of my textbooks (as if somehow, in my mind, that doesn't count) So I'm thrilled that I found it, but feeling a little guilty about breaking down so quickly in my quest to knit from stash. I just had a feeling it would be so hard to find by the time October rolled around.
Last night was productive... I tried my hand at kettle dyeing some sock yarn my Sockret Pal gave me. I ended up with a pretty turquoise/blue/plum skein and a pink/plum skein. It dried overnight so I'll see how it skeins up.
