Yesterday, I checked out a new(to me) yarn shop in Broadview Heights, Ohio, close to where I live in Cleveland. It's called Soft N' Sassy, and it has the most sock yarn I've ever seen in a Cleveland-area yarn store! ShibuiKnits, Dream in Color Smooshy, Noro, Mountain Colors, Tuscan Grove, and tons more. I picked up a couple skeins of ShibuiKnits Sock in the colorway "Wasabi."

I'm proud to share that I have made major "Manly" sock progress on sock #1, for the SKA October Sockdown on Ravelry. I'm just about to the heel flap of the first sock(and when I say "just about," I really mean with 16 rows to go on the leg. But those 16 rows will fly by....right?).
It's a fun pattern, with many rows that can be memorized by reading the chart countless times. I will be casting on for the second sock immediately after finishing the first sock, to avoid the dreaded SSS. I've been a victim of SSS many times, just check out my projects page on Ravelry.
I'll post a pic of the sock tomorrow, in good light if its not raining so that the pattern is visible!
Heading off to the doctor's office with my 3 year old for a flu shot (for him). I already got mine a few weeks ago.

Still working on my "Manly" socks--they are coming along well. This evening, I will be reading some new knitting magazines after my son falls asleep.
Have a great day!
