A few weeks ago I signed up for another KAL. This one was also for Larissa’s book; a quick an easy sock knit in Manos del Uruguay. I have always wanted to try this yarn and I was planning a trip to our LYS in a few days. I have a lot of knitting projects on my plate right now and I needed a new one like a hole in the head, but I couldn’t resist. The colorway I picked was beautiful and since I live in brown, black and denim, it was a perfect choice. It was as if the stars had aligned and said “You must knit these socks.”
And now I am in love with Manos. These are the softest and warmest socks I have ever owned. I’m debating a whole sweater in Manos. Oh, to wrap myself up in that warm and soft wool—how divine! I think this is maybe how yarn addictions start. I must be careful, or next year I’ll be taking the knit from your stash challenge.
