Plain stockinette extravaganza

I'm still recovering from "the work project that ate my life".

So, I'm afraid it's more stockinette for you.

I figured that blogging about plain socks is better than not blogging at all, right?

Anyone paying attention to my queue and favourites in Ravelry knows that my fingers are just itching for some intricate lace shawls in rich, jewel tones. To be continued....

Yes, it is. Just knowing you are still out there dreaming up witty commentary is enough. And the neutral socks looks gorgeous.

I love stockinette! That yarn is nice colours. I am using it at the moment for some lace pattern socks.

I have learned the value of plain vanilla knitting. However, I can tell you'll be up to your eyes in charts soon!

Thanks for the info re. the Jo Sharp yarn. I have recently purchased some and look forward to knitting it up!
Your blog is wonderful, too, by the way!

Plain socks that look like they came out of your grandmother's hope chest are definitely worth blogging about. They look like heirlooms.
