Hmmm, I noticed that I forgot to answer this question for my KSKS buddy:
13. Any pattern you would love to make if money and time were no object?
The answer to this is here: Garden Party Socks.
These socks are knit in Cascade Fixation and also Elann Esprit...that white looks amazing.
I'm also dying for the book by Nancy Bush..."Knitting Vintage Socks"...not as a hint, but a general idea of what I like. (I'm really NOT greedy....well, I guess to some degree with yarns, right Donna!)
I promise more photos tomorrow and also recommendations for two super online places....one to get your knitting organized and another to find fantastic dyed fibers....(though I maintain my Utter Loyalty to Lisa of Yarn Botanika and her super sock yarns and delicious, beautiful fibers/spindle kits).
Have a super relaxing evening....(if you have kids home on summer break...I wish you a solitary hour of quiet, bliss, wine and a nice long bath) ; )
