How did it get to be morning again so soon?

I frogged the cabled socks in the orange yarn because I didn't like them after I got going. All week long, the Conwy socks from Knitting on the Road have been talking to me.

As usual, the pictures are terrible in the book - as they usually are in Nancy Bush books, don't know why. Could we have the socks in a foot? And maybe not so high-contrast you can't see the pattern?

So anyway, after I saw those...well, I had to have a pair. I am (gasp) not a huge fan of Jitterbug, and I tried to make these once before using some brightly variegated yarn, so solids it was.

Then I swatched in my orange yarn, and they looked just like my recently completed Hedgerow socks. So I brought out some chocolate brown Rowan 4-ply soft, and I think it's a winner.

Also, because you can never have enough sock bags, I bought another - found by way of this lovely blog. I got the Autumn Flowers sock cube. Looks lovely! Check 'em out!

I stalked the cats with a camera this morning, but alas it is rainy-looking and there is no light. Soon! Sorry for the no-picture post.

Ditto on the sock bags - I've become a fanatic about them.
