New Sock Yarn and Sirdar Denim Chunky

This is my gorgeous, new sock yarn from eBay. I took it outside and tried natural light for the second picture. Had to take an up-close of the orangey one. I love that one best, I think! I am going to make Wyverns with this one. They all may become Wyverns, depending on how the first pair goes. Then again, I may try to decide between the other two which one I want for Sockapalooza. Kinda had in mind to make Wyverns for Sockapalooza, too. I will make my pair first and see how it goes from there. I do have a couple of back-up patterns if I change my mind. I will definitely be a repeat buyer from this seller!

I also got my Sirdar Denim Chunky, also an eBay purchase. I started Logan's sweater with it. I only have a few rows completed so far, and I find it kinda splitty. It's going to be nice, though, and it's going to knit up fast.

I also completed my March socks for the Sock-A-Month-Knitalong! They were knit with Patons Shetland Chunky in a discontinued color called Sand Marl. These will go in our camper, I think. They are too thick to wear with any of my shoes. I think they'll be good to wear evenings/mornings when it's still chilly. We camp early and late in the season. Our camper has a furnace. The first pair of socks I ever made were these socks in the very same color! I had knit a sweater for myself (which I still have) and had enough left over to make the socks. I ended up wearing them for slippers and wore the bottoms right out of them!

Lastly, I had to take this picture of Logan and Simba last night in Daddy's chair.

Happy Knitting!

I love your new sock yarn!! I think I like the orange one the best, too, although they're all really beautiful. Getting sock yarn in the mail makes my day! ;-) Your new socks are fantastic! They look warm and comfy to wear to bed at night. Looking forward to seeing your Wyverns... take care! :-)
