When Black Friday Comes

Posted by Andi on January 24, 2010

My Black Friday gift to myself was a hank of Draygone Yarnes sock yarn in the Chicago Blackhawks colorway. I had been coveting it, and for the longest time there was just one hank on her Etsy site. Finally, on Black Friday, I broke down and bought it. I took a lot of time and care choosing a pattern. I finally chose Vortical from the Winter 2008 issue of Knotions. Today I finally finished the first sock.

I love it! The spiral goes in opposite directions on each leg. Now that I have this one down pat I fear that I will have a hard time on the next sock. It’s going to take a little though I think.
