I don't have much going on, but I felt obligated to post since it's been awhile. All I've got is this picture of my in-progress second Tropical Sock:


The yarn is Great Adirondack Yarn Company (Soxie) and it's my favorite out of all the sock yarns I've knit with so far (Claudia's Handpainted would come in second). I can't pinpoint what it is that's so great about it - it doesn't look any different than the Koigu or Yarn Pirate I'm using for my Rosie socks, but the fabric it produces is softer and somehow draws me in more. It was the colors and not the quality of the yarn that led me to buy it in the first place, but I'll definitely be seeking this yarn out in the future.

I'm looking forward to knitting with and wearing a lot of different yarns in the near future, because I want to put reviews of them here on my blog. That's something I almost always search for before buying (except for those all-too-frequent impulse buys!) but never have much luck finding, and I've noticed that a lot of people end up here by searching for a yarn I've used, so I'd like to think reviews would be something useful to other knitters out there. Anyway, that's for the future - especially since I want to see how something wears before posting my opinion of it, so not only do I first have to knit all of these yarns, but then I have to wear them. Don't hold your breath...

Very pretty. Sock yarn reviews would be interesting to me. I like seeing objects knit from yarns and/or colors I'm thinking of purchasing.
