My name is Ruth...and I'm a sockaholic....

Just a quick post...to ask if anyone will please interact with my poor children and clean up my house. I am desperately addicted to sock knitting and I just can't stop! hehe....
Seriously, though...I am sooo enjoying knitting at the moment. I still
need to sit and flick through a step-by-step guide but I'm getting there. One fun aspect to all this sock thingie is rummaging through my old handspun projects and finding suitable yarn. I've never really bought yarn (I was a spinning before I learnt to knit) but seeing Tyes new yarns on her blog recently has got me wanting to!
This yarn is a Sheepychic Multi-coloured snowy hank I spun up a while ago...(yep..I hand dyed all o' that!) which, if you look closely, has a gold metallic thread running through it, too.
I wanted to ensure I had enough for a pair so I swung over to a nice fine little Sheepychic Natural Chocolate corridale single that was hanging about. I figured little D or P is constantly scooting out without their shoes so the corridale will be hardy and hide stains...and hey...it'll be under their boots, anyway. I was really pleased with how it all went together...
All the very best and thanks for logging onto Sheepychic bloggings. Be sure to leave a cheerio in the comments if you're visiting...and if you've enjoyed having a little gander please let a couple of your knitterly pals know how they can log in too....
Any yarn enquiries...contact me at sheepychic@hotmail.com
Regards, Ruth...x
