Socks and cute dog
This is Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed DK, and makes a nice thick sock, almost the texture of a ragg wool sock but a bit lighter. I only mention this in some detail because this yarn is now on sale at Little Knits for a very good price...less than $6 per ball. You'll need two balls for socks but still. It's a good deal.
Which I bring up because...hello, where have I been...do you know that some of the sock companies are now charging $26 for a skein of sock yarn? When did that happen? It used to be that $20 was high end, then $22, and I know I've spent $24 maybe once or twice but $26? That is getting into crazy territory.
Luckily I have enough sock yarn to last me a while.
But isn't it nuts?
