Pattern: Just Yer Basic Sock By Alyson Johnson
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock (Colourway S164)
Needle Size: 2.75mm Circular Needles (Magic Loop)

I really enjoyed knitting these socks, the pattern was easy to follow which was a plus since these are my first ever socks. I am now addicted to knitting socks and sock yarn (didn't take me long to become hooked) and have already cast on my second pair. The yarn did stripe beautifully and the colours, as always with Noro yarns, are exquisite, however the yarn did have a tendency to knot so I was frequently trying to untangle as I knit. But all in all I'm very happy with the end results.

Malabrigo Worsted

I've just received in the mail my order of Malabrigo Worsted Yipeeee. I LOVE the colour and am so glad I picked this colourway (Stonechat).
I've decided to knit the "Wicked" worsted weight sweater from Zephyr Style, cant wait to cast on!
I also ordered a skein of Cascade 220, a beautiful heathered chocolate brown, which I'm planning to turn into the "Star Crossed Slouchy Beret" by Natalie Larson (which is free on ravelry).
