So, I got this yarn the other day- this really wild off-the-wall yarn that is totally outside of what I would have knit about a year ago. I purposed at the beginning of this year to work really hard at breaking out of my monochromatic tendencies and I think these socks are evidence of my progress in that arena.

The yarn is self-striping Fluormania, another line by the fabulous Regia. These socks are going to be hard wearing, my friend. I love that about Regia.

These are vanilla top down socks, but it feels a little silly saying that since "vanilla" doesn't seem an accurate description. I'm knitting them via magic loop on US 1s for the first time, and I have to say that I'm enjoying the circular sock knitting.

{This is the point at which I whisper that I have sock pairs #7 & 8 for the year on the needles. I can't say it out loud, because this sort of knitting might stop at any moment like it was all a dream, leaving me with vague memories and a drawer full of handknit socks.}

I'm working my way through A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon. This book is moving a lot faster than the last one in the series, partly because of the book itself and partly because I've been working hard to find more reading time. I'm trying to read a little earlier in the evening to make sure I get the time in since I'm still frequently falling asleep early, and that has helped, but I'm also trying to get in some reading during one or two of Ellie's nap times during the week. Every line and paragraph helps, right?
