The Sockman cometh

Actually I don't know whether it will be the Sockman or the Sockwoman who will cometh with my Spring Sock Club Vesper sock yarn from Knitterly Things; three or four very nice mailpersons rotate stints in the neighbourhood. The main thing is, I've had notice the first round of yarn has been shipped.

I can't wait. I've been sock-resistant for a long time because they are, for me, an impractical project with a high addiction risk, but now that I've given in to spindling I just don't care. Heck, I've even bought four sets of sock-friendly double pointed needles, two of them identical in size and length, just to be ready. Well, the overlapping size was an accident, but will allow me to have both socks going at the same time without the added burden of Magic Looping or other circular needle gymnastics, so I'm deeming it a case of Clever Forethought.

And now if you will excuse me, I will go and get into position at the mailbox.

I am so excited for you. And am going to congratulate your forethought. I am one needle short of being able to do two-at-once effectively, and resisting the temptation of a second set. As it is I'm doing a staggered one-and-a-half-socks at once thing, which is, er, interesting.

I knew we'd get you sooner or later...

I resisted for a long time, too...I can't say I've become addicted to sock knitting per se but I do like wearing knitted socks! And a sock stash is ever so much more discrete than a sweater stash; an added bonus for sure.

Can't wait to see the new droolables.
