New Sock Yarn Arrived!!!

We received most of our shipment of new sock yarns. Some of it was backordered. I will have to try to remember to bring my camera tomorrow and take some pics of it. We can mail it out if anyone is interested! I have too many colors picked out already, but some of it I want to make as Christmas gifts. It's all Regia, some of it is mini ringel, some is self-striping, solids, tweeds, 3 ply, 4 ply...

I ran into a snag with my Pomatomus sock. I am on the gusset of the first sock and was on row 17 of Chart B. I had 2 too many stitches. I backed out a few rounds and think I now have to knit row 16. I don't know if I picked up a stitch too many or what exactly happened. I brought it to work with me today to get Shelly to help me with it. This is only the second time I've worked from a chart, and I find Chart B confusing. I'm anxious to go home and try it again.

Hope to have some pictures posted tomorrow night. We've had beautiful spring-like weather all week. Tomorrow and Sunday are going to be really chilly, only highs of -10C.

Happy knitting!

Got home and tried the sock again. I think I did pick up an extra purl stitch along the way. Everything seems to be going fine now. Think I am on row 9 of Chart B, doing the second repeat on the foot. I just hope I have enough yarn left in the skein to finish the sock. If not I will have to pick up another skein. We only have three of them left at the store.

Awesome! I love Regia!
I hope your Pomatomus gets worked out--I'm looking forward to pics. Hint, hint...=)

I can't fathom highs of -10 degrees (anyone know how to make adegree symbol?) having lived in Cali my whole life. That's like Antarctica! lol
