Socks — Taos, NM

When I’m on road trips, I like to buy stuff. On Sunday we drove 10 hours straight through the Oklahoma panhandle to reach pretty Taos, New Mexico. The old plaza is so cute, but also a bit touristy, with lots of souvenir shops.  However, there are also wonderful galleries and many shops filled with beautiful items made by the local artists.  I was drawn to the gorgeous hand spun and dyed yarns. Although I haven’t knitted anything since I was in my twenties, I was inspired by Ann at Nifty Needle, who just learned how to knit, and who decided to make socks as her first project.  I always thought socks looked so complicated with all those double-pointed needles, but I’m going to give it a try anyway.

This yarn is Merino wool and bamboo in beautiful muted shades of purple, and the book was recommended by the shop owner.
