Yarn Snobs Unite Swap

I have been spoiled by Nerdgirl! Look at my wonderful gifts that came today! She so went above and beyond the requirements.
Not only did I get this gorgeous Koigu colorway, but she included a sock pattern. I am going to conquer my fear of the toe up, short row heel sock. The directions look easy, I know I can do it. She also sent some delicious Walker Shortbread cookies to enjoy while knitting.
Hmmm, I know that blue, gray and white are the first Project Spectrum colors...wonder if there is enough blue in this colorway??? I guess I need to see when green projects start.

I am going to have to search out that pattern. I really want to try a toe up sock, and I prefer the short row heels, they fit better. Sounds like a trip to the yarn store.

Green doesn't start until April but there is currently a Green Sock KAL. You could find more information on Lolly's blog. I have some beautiful green yarn also but I'm waiting until April. I've got a pair of socks to keep me busy until Feb. and some yarn to look forward to then.

This IS beautiful yarn!
