Sockittome


Just arrived in to The Yarn Grove, Sockittome Sock yarn from Cherry Tree Hill. That is what I have been doing for 2 days - photographing, petting, and simply drooling over this yarn. It is a 80% merino / 20% nylon yarn - soft and in CTH's gorgeous colorways.


I will be picking out a color or two because, hang on to your seat, my husband was watching me put the finishing touches on one Cheryl B. Design sock last night and asked me if it might be possible to knit him a pair or two. Huh, are you talkin' to me? why sure honey. Of course, here are the instructions... "I don't need them all the way up my calf, just to the ankle". Better still. He sleeps with socks on every night. He is so cold natured - *me*, oh heavens no. I cannot sleep with socks on. The only time I did/do was when our power was out from an ice storm for 3 days. I must admit, it was a little chilly here. But that's it. No sock sleeping for me. How about you? Socks on or Socks off? Just curious...


Tomorrow is tomato day. Yep, I'm cleaning my canning jars now. Went to farmers market this week and bought 50 lbs of them. I *love* to can. I have about 10 tomato plants myself but they don't yield enough for me to put em up. However, we do enjoy eating them... a lot! Picked my first ones last night.


Where am I headed now? To fix me a tomato sandwich. Now here in the south, the only real 'mater sandwich is one on white bread only - with mayonnaise, salt, pepper and a fresh juicy sliced 'mater, fresh picked. Yummmmm....

Hi Jane - If you are still accepting suggestions for the website, could you add a page for new additions so that we can easily check to see what you've added? The Sockittome looks wonderful.
