The verdict is in.....

I like Socks That Rock yarn much better than Koigu.
I'm not saying that it's better. I'm just saying that I like it better.
It's not as soft as koigu therefore it feels sturdier and warmer to me.
It appears to be a thicker sock than the koigu and I think it will wear
better. And it's gorgeous. Every colorway is gorgeous. Those people
really know what they're doing.

Cate's Erin Bag is almost finished. I'll sew it up tonight. I know as soon as I see it finished I'm going to want one for myself.

In other news, I'm getting the urge to do something I haven't done for a long, long time. And if I start, I know there is no turning back and it will take time away from knitting. I want to sew again. I think it's Colin's fault. I had so much fun sewing for my kids when they were little. I honestly don't know where my sewing machine is. I haven't seen it since we moved in 1992. Maybe a new sewing machine is in order?? Hmmn. I also have a dress in mind that I can't find anywhere. But I'm sure I could find a pattern for it. This isn't good. Not. Good.
