OK, now that I'm back in Seattle and have gone crazy like a three-year old on a 2 liter of Mountain Dew with the making of a sock stash...
Eh, I tend to think the stash is still manageable if it fits in one smallish fabric cube from Target (about 10" to each side) and I know exactly what's in said stash. Then again, I'm the sort who has an Excel spreadsheet to manage my yarn.
In any case, I heart Charlene Schurch and "More Sensational Knitted Socks". The project is the "Moss Diamonds" pattern in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock colorway "Green Apple" (exclusive to Angelika's Yarn Store)
We'll see how my next venture into the world of patterning works out.
In other news, I'm no longer observing in Alaska. I've accepted a grad assistantship to Rutgers University to get an Oceanography master's, studying juvenile fish. Woohoo!
