        See its funny because it’s not like I don’t like kinittng socks, any of my Portland knitter friends could tell you that. It’s just kinittng socks with really light fingering (bordering on lace weight) makes me a bit batty. I need to look at my stash again and see what I have, but it looks like my next socks will be out of STR medium weight it’ll be a nice change in weight
