Holiday Yarns in the Stellar Sock Club. It's a club which sends out yarn dyed based on Hubble telescope photos. I love to knit and I love space pictures, so it was a must! It's just the sock part that's caused me some trouble. I don't knit socks. But, I have changed my ways (if only for the club and the love of my life). Orion's Nebula was the first installment. Tomorrow's Fomalhaut was the second. I can't wait to show the finished socks to you!
I cast on a pair of Cookie A. socks in Andromeda last night to participate in a sock knit-along on Ravelry in a Harry Potter group (that's a story for another day :) ). The pattern is Thelonious and it requires sooooo much attention! I don't know if I've ever struggled with a pattern so much, but it's coming out beautifully. The picture here of the yarn does not do it justice. It's blue with a purple overwash. So pretty! :)
In conclusion, check out Holiday Yarns! She has some beautiful stuff and some cool clubs besides this one (you'd think that I'd have joined the Greek Mythology Lace Club, being a classicist, but I'm a bigger space nerd, I guess). Pardon my blog barraging. :) I'll make the boy show you his baby angels very soon. They are so stinkin' cute!
