So much sock yarn...

So little time...

This one seems to be taking FOREVER now that I found another cool yarn from Fortissima to try out.

It is veredlt with Rosskastanien. Which means they process it with horse chestnut to help tired and swollen feet :) How cool is that, I ask you!

Can't wait to see how the pattern turns out - but I'm fairly certain who's getting to try this yarn out...


  1. I think you will find the Addi turbos wonderful needles. The only time I don't use them is when I have a very slippery yarn and then I go find some wooden or babmoo to 'grab' and hold my yarn a bit. I wish I had known about them along time ago, but when I first started knitting, we had no yarn store and I never even thought to connect to the internet about it. Now I am off and running. And never looking back.

  2. Hi Patti!
    I admit, that I'm really growing to like these turbos. Even though I practically had to beg for them at the yarn shop. They were hidden in a shoe box behind the counter and the owner kept pretending not to understand my German - and I'm really not that bad ;)

  3. Hi Kathleen! Thanks for stopping over to my blog. I see you like socks as much as I do. I can't stop making them... I know what you mean about the Addi's--I think they hide them when they see a forigner coming. Maybe because they know I'll buy 'em all up!

  4. Yay! Kathleen has a blog!

    P.S. Addi Turbos are my favorite needles of all time. Clovers come second.
