A Bit Of A Splurge

As you all know, I knit socks. In fact, I quite enjoy knitting socks....but only on my own terms, which are as follows:

  1. They must be plain socks, because sock knitting for me is a mindless activity which allows me to relax.
  2. The yarn must be not only pretty, but durable.
  3. As I knit plain patterns, self-striping yarns (while no longer really in favor with the general knitting population) are a big plus. What can I say..I'm easily amused!

I've tried a lot of sock yarns over the last 7 years, but I must say that time and time again I return to Opal because when it comes right down to it, it's proven to be my best workhorse yarn.

And so, when I found some on sale at Webs for half price...well, was there any question?

No, there really couldn't be any question :)

Opal is my very favorite sock yarn because it wears so well and the colors are always fun to knit!

Nope, doesn't look like a question at all. :D
