HA! I have a British pal!

And she isn't secret anymore, either! Don't you wish YOU had her? But she's mine, all mine! *cackle*

My dear Mandella sent me a lovely parcel, wrapped in brown paper, which contained lovely surprises. She's going to help me part with my sock virginity. I guess that it's about the right time, as I've been knitting for about two years now. We're having a little Dorset-Mesa sock-along, and the only thing yet to definitely nail down is the pattern. Della, she's experienced, worldly, methinks, in the making of socks. I've not yet ventured into this realm.

Suggestions? Patterns? I know that all 3 of you who read my blog must have some sort of an opinion, so let's hear it!

Hooray for Brits, my dear girl in particular. Thanks Della, you've given me a big happy hug across the pond.

You should attempt to coordinate your efforts with the Other KT who is also interested in her first socks. I sent her a couple links, I would be happy to forward them to you!
PS I have added Circus Yarns to my list of sock yarns to try. Not that I need any more sock yarn!
