(Now that I’ve gifted the secret knitting, I can tell ya’ll what I’ve been up to!) I know my math skills are atrocious but stick with me here. I started off with 2 skeins of Socks that Rock Medium weight in Boysenberry purchased at Maryland Sheep and Wool 2006 and 1 skein of Rhodonite purchased at Rhinebeck 2006. Some of these socks have never been blogged about. (sneaky, sneaky!)
