I never thought I'd see this again...

Gas for $1.99 a gallon. A few weeks ago I was thrilled to get gas for less than $3.00 a gallon, and now look at it! Will wonders never cease...
On other completely unrelated news, this sock yarn blank...

...knits up like this.

Yes, I know I was supposed to finish one of the many socks that I already have on the needles before casting on with this yarn, but what can I say...I'm weak!

You're not weak; you're a good investigative reporter. We wanted to know how it knitted up too!

OMG - that's awesome! We're psyched to be at $2.42..... I guess there's still hope!

Still waiting to see less than $2.00 here. lowest was $2.14 last night. I thought that was great.
Your sock blanks look great dyed and knitted!
Yes, I am going to Stitches on Saturday on a bus trip with my LYS!! I don't have your email, send me one at mspalmtree@aol.com and we can discuss this! :-)

Those socks are knitting up so cool! I love how "random" it looks, yet it all flows together. It's totally not what I expected it to look like, but I think I like it even better now!

Yay, $1.99! Oh, jeez. I can't believe I just said that...

Yes, when one has untried yarn, one must do the right thing and show us how it looks!

Gorgeous socks! Your yarn couldn't be prettier.
