So I started a pair of socks tonight. It’s one ball of Opal Magic. I had grand ideas of getting the pair to match exactly, so I pulled out half to make a separate ball (I’m working both simultaneously). But then I realized I didn’t know how I’d get them even and I’d hate to have one run out near the toe. So they’ll be different this time. I need to get a postal scale for the future.

And I spent some time looking at sock yarns online because I want to make gloves with some this year. I think I’ve settled on Opal Mosaic because the pattern repeat is rather short, which should translate well to fingers.

But while I was looking at that, I found an Opal Sock of the Month Club. So tempting…..
