Just Like Candy!

I can hardly believe it, but I am done early this week: the new colors are all ready to go for this evening's SockPixie shop update.
The new colors are scrumptious!This one is Whirly Pop, and as Lucille Ball would say "Just like candy!"

This morning, my youngest son, who had not yet seen the new colors, and did not know I had decided to do a candy theme, said :" Mom, these yarns make me think of candy. Look a Hershey's Kiss!" I was so happy, I kissed him a million times, which he finds really gross (after all, he is almost a 10 year old young man!)

I have had practically no time to knit this week, so there will not be a new sock pattern today. I still owe you the Tiffany Socks. I am doing a final check before posting the pattern. Things should be better, my oldest has started her semester, and tomorrow is Martin Luther King Day, so we will not be homeschooling. I may even knit a pair of socks for me. You know that I have never knit a pair of socks for myself. I give them all away to family and friends.

I have my eyes on some of this week's colorways. I might go for a pair of gorgeous Whirly Pops, in plain stockinette. The yarn is so beautiful, I just want to let it do all the "talking"!

Gorgeous! Whirly Pop is the perfect name for this color.
