Time for Sock #2

Knitting on the leaf lace shawl is finished and it needs blocking.

I've purchased some really nice Alpaca With a Twist Fino lace yarn and am itching to start a lace shawl - rectangular this time and probably from "Victorian Lace Today".

But first I need to get that second Tomato Soup Sock out of the way. It is a Christmas present and a house sock with thick yarn and big needles makes quick work. Still it is less thrilling to do than start a new project. Besides the rectangular shawl would be mine and these will not be.

This is Artyarns Supermerino and is so squishy and nice. This will be third pair of Thuja house socks I have made and none have been for me. So see; I'm not completely selfish!

(I only use 2 skeins and make the cuffs shorter than I do for 'regular' socks.)

The Tomato Soup sock and yarn look so yummy!

I like the colors in your Tomato Soup socks. Never seen that "in person" before.
I've started another lace project too. I seem to like that better than anything else - there's no right or wrong size!
Enjoying the cold weather? I'm loving it.
