Hand-dyed Happiness

I'm knitting another sock. This is a relatively thoughtless sock. That's not a reflection on its character. Perhaps I should say it's relatively "un-premeditated".  I hadn't really planned for my next carry along project after I finished the hot heels socks. I pretty much just cast these on as I was heading out the door so I would have something to carry with me in my handbag. Now the first of the pair is done and the second cuff is also nearly done, so it won't be long before I have one more opportunity for pretty warm feet.

I wasn't too sure about this particular skein of yarn before I started knitting, but I'm loving how it's coming off the needles.
It's the extra touches of red that confused me while it was in the skein and amuse me as they show up in a few stitches here and there.

Welcome to the club of those of us who permanently have a "travelling sock" in their handbag! A nice, small, portable project to keep you company whilst waiting. And then you have nice warm feet when the project is done!
Loving the colours of your current sock. Mmmmm ... pretty ...

Tammy was so right about once you tried it you would get addicted to sock knitting.
