Lotsa Socks!

My Sock Yarn - Fernwood's Socks
Last year, in preparation for the holidays, I knitted tons and tons of wristwarmers. It drove me nuts! Of course, the wristwarmers were well-received, but I really knocked myself out doing all that knitting!
I decided to take it a bit easier on myself this year. I ordered lotsa socks from Fernwood Woolworks in Oregon. You send them your own sock yarn, wound into a cake. A few weeks later, they send you back a beautiful pair of socks to your size specifications. Lynette at Fernwood knits the socks on a 1920's sock machine. The price is reasonable, the socks are beautiful and everyone loves them! This is a win-win situation. I will be supplementing my gift-giving this year with these gorgeous socks! Maybe you're on my list!
