Learning to make socks

While I was visiting family and friends over the holidays in Los Angeles, my pal Janel took me to a wonderful yarn store called A Mano. The two women who run this place are the greatest and the store had the nicest vibe with people sitting around chatting and knitting. It was the friendliest yarn store I'd ever seen. So, of course, I had to buy something! I've been wanting to learn how to make socks and Janel was buying some sock yarn so I did too. Now I'm making these socks with Lorna's Lace's sock yarn.

And here's a quick progress update on my Union Square Market sweater. I've just gotten to the armholes and have divided the front and back which means I can now lay it out flat. Do you like my method of blocking with crap (post-it pad, battery charger & container of binder clips) sitting on my desk???
