Started something new!

My mom bought herself some sock yarn only to discover that sock knitting just isn't for her. She really loved her yarn and really wanted her knitted socks so I promised to knit them for her. I've finally started them and hope to have them done well in time for NJ cold weather.

The yarn is Lorna Laces Shepherd Sock in the color Argyle.

This is what the yarn looked like when I swatched it. I'm getting 10 stitches to an inch on size one needles. That seems like a lot of stitches per an inch to me.

I'm really happy with how the colors are spiraling around. I have no clue why they are spiraling around, but I like it.

i really like the spiral effect that's going on too! That's so cool that that's happening.
