My newest yarn!

So I'm ready to venture into my first object that's NOT diaperwool...I decided on socks. Living Light (or rainbowed, in Andy's words), socks. This is Harmony (from Zenstring... --go to their site right now and look at all the yumminess that could be yours!), which is a blend of superwash merino and tencel...i.e., so soft it makes you want to bury your face in it. I went to my LYS (awesome place...find them here: and got my teensy-tiny DPNs, and the most basic sock pattern I could get (KPS, or for those of us who aren't familiar with the lingo, Knitting Pure and Simple--they make a ton of awesome patterns, and you should check them out if you haven't already).

Oh, and I'm nearly done with the Koolaid shorties (see June's posts for my Koolaid-dyed wool). The leg is flaring out just a tad, making them look a bit girly; I'm going to block them and try to gently stretch the rest of the leg out, so they don't look quite so flared. I love the way the colors look, though; I'll finish them tonight and wash them, and post a pic hopefully tomorrow! Here's a preview, though...
