I am so in love!

So I have knit two pairs of socks so far. The first pair was out of some baby yarn and the second was out of Lion Brand Magic Stripes. I didn't cast on another pair of socks after I finished the last pair (I'm not entirely sure why I didn't but nevertheless I have been) and when my dear yarn pal Ang was over last week, she helped me pick between the delicious red/purple/magenta yarn I got at the California Wool and Fiber Festival and my Hill Country Yarns sock yarn by reminding me that any day was good for red sock yarn, it's only football season for so long. Score one for Ang, I'm so in love.

That's their Sweet Feet Sock Yarn in the Hook 'em Horns colorway. Since I've never knit with 100% merino wool before, I'm enjoying the lovely softness of it. But I'm also in love with the colorway itself. The hues are such perfect Longhorn colors and they fade in and out of the burnt orange so beautifully. I can't wait to finish this pair.

Here's a closeup of the sock.

Have I mentioned how excited I am to be knitting these socks?! ^_^

Your new sock looks great. You should design a long horns lace pattern.. Or maybe I should.... hmmm.
