When the Aran is finished, I'll start some complicated socks. Meanwhile, I always like to have an easy, portable pair on the needles; it's a security thing, like carrying a book around with you. The next pair will use this self-patterning yarn.



It makes sense; I'm usually reading two or three books at the same time.
