Socks N Stuff

I got Charlotte's second sock "almost" finished last night. At 11:00pm I only had a few more rows to do but my pillow was calling so I had to set it down. And I was SO SO close! Don't you just hate that??? I've just been staring at the stupid baby sweater. I will NEVER, let me repeat, NEVER knit a Phildar pattern again. Their instructions are so hard to follow. The Irish Hiking Scarf is coming along. It is definitely fun to work on. And I love that yarn. I'm not going to start another pair of socks until I get that scarf finished. And I still have the second Irish sock to do for the Sock It To Me knit along. That will go fast. Knitting with worsted weight is great. I'm searching for a bulky weight wool for a sweater for myself. I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it either. I'm thinking Lamb's Pride. I have to make a stop at the LYS and check things out.
I was reading a blog this morning and someone's mother sent her a bag full of wool yarn for Christmas... wouldn't that be great? Just to have someone send you beautiful skeins of yarn to do with what you please? I also found a yarn on that blog that looks interesting... It's Art Yarns supermerino. The colors are fabulous. I might have to get me some of that! I'd put a link here for it, but, alas, I DON'T KNOW HOW!!! I am in dire need of blog lessons.
