Yarn Enhancement

I've been buying a fair amount of sock yarn in the past few weeks,but haven't posted photos.  These three skeins are from StrayCatYarns on Etsy which is based in New Zealand.

They are (from left to right) Silver Star, Blue Moon, and Seuss Juice

They're going have to wait, however,as I am busily knitting socks for the Addicted to Socks Facebook group Holiday KAL and the #grinchalong.

I'm using this wool from WanderingWool on Etsy for Christmas Lace socks in the Girly-Girl sock pattern.

This wool, from SpinningFates on Etsy, is destined to become You're a Mean One, Mr Grinch socks.

Happy Hanukkah socks from yarn by Mintrain on Etsy.

Pointsettia socks from yarn by CrazyDog Yarns on Etsy.

A blend of merino wool and silk from Rambling Rose Yarns on Etsy to make St. Nicholas Day socks.

And finally, yarn from SpinningFates on Etsy for Winter Solstice socks.

So I'm going to be busy during the next six weeks if I want to finish all these socks by the end of the year!
