Fiber Friday - More CTH

I got this skein of Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Potluck in blues/purples when I go the Red Hot and Green I posted a several weeks ago. I'm going to knit socks with it of course, when is the question. I love the colors in this skein.

I'm finishing up my second Anastasia sock and have to decide on a pattern to start as soon as those are finished. Earlier this week I ordered Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks for some inspiration on what to knit. I also have a copy of Barbara Walker's Treasury of Knitting Patterns on the way just in case I'm inspired enough to figure out my own sock pattern.

Trying to write up a pattern would be an industrious use of some vacation time I have coming up. Between my vacation days and the days off I get for the holidays, I will be off work three weeks at the end of the year. At least one of those weeks will be filled with family commitments and holiday stuff - but the other two will be all mine and I'm hoping for a lot of knitting time.

My favorite pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks is the Childs Shell Pattern. It was converted to an adult size in the book. Hope you have as much fun with your book as I have with mine....

First visit to your blog...clicked a hotlink for Norovember on another knitter's blog. Must confess to wicked coveting of your Kuryeon stash...a bit stalkerish, OCD of me, but I counted 32 (!) skeins. Can that be right?! Oh my, the abundance of it all. Yum, yum, wooly goodness.

Man is that gorgeous yarn! I LOVE CTH.

Thanks for the kind comment about my socks, by the way... I've added the pattern/yarn info to the post, in case you're interested. Thanks for asking!!

3 weeks? I'm so jealous. I'll be going home from the 20th-28th. I think I may go insane by the 22nd. One can only hope my knitting will save me!
