Forward MARCH!!

I was poking around on the LimeNViolet message boards and came across a post about Sock Madness. Basically they are going to send out a series of sock patterns during March Madness and you compete against other knitters to see who can finish first.

Now, I've only been knitting for a few months and I've only just cast on my second pair of socks so what business would a novice like me have signing up for something like this you ask?! If you said, the hubby is out again and I need something to help pass the time you're absolutely correct but more importantly it gives me an excuse to buy more yarn!!

Speaking of my second pair of socks these are for my sis. My digital camera is still MIA so this is taken with my ancient web cam.

Pattern: Maple Sugar Socks
Yarn: Lisa Souza, Can't-Elope

I'm feeling a little limited right now because all of the sock patterns that I've been drooling over call for US1 size needles and the smallest I have are 2s. I ordered a sock needle kit online so hopefully it won't be too much longer. One of these days I'll be able to adapt patterns but that day is not today.

On a side note I have the beginnings of a yarn stash!! I just got my skein of The Kilted One by Miss Lime from the LimeNViolet Etsy shop. I'm still waiting on my Mystical Creations yarn and I just ordered two skeins from Yarn Pirate in Apple and Hydrangea. Pretty huh?
