I've been away from socks for a while, probably 6-9 months or so. I have cast on for the STR club sock and am working away on that. I learned about http://www.aswellyarnshop.com/cart/home.php, I already own the alien colorway and I had ordered the Exclamation colorway. It arrived on Friday and so Friday night, I wound it and cast on. I was having trouble with a stockinette toe, so I used the garter toe from the STR club sock and away I go. I am almost done with the 2 feet of the socks. Yea!
