I received yarn this week from Webs; it was all on clearance. The middle skein is Plymouth Socketta and it is no longer available. The others are Regia Fusi Color yarn. I have not used it before but the colors were so happy looking and the price was great.
My current socks use Knit Picks Stroll yarn in Parlor multi. I am using the simple skyp pattern again. The pattern is not as obvious with this yarn but it is better then "plain vanilla." These socks will be a birthday gift for a quilting buddy who has terrible bunions. I looked at some discussions on Ravelry and found some good advice. I am making the socks a little larger and the natural stretchiness of the yard should be all the compensation needed for the bunions. I just love my little knitting tote. It was a gift from my niece, Tara. The size is perfect for little projects like socks.
