{Books and Yarn} Remember Those Single Skeins of Sock Yarn?

I'd completely forgotten about them until a couple of days ago. I think I found the last couple of skeins and both had the contrasting yarn for heels and toes.

Remind me if I do this again to buy the solid yarn in a lighter color. Picking up wraps with this shade of dark blue requires taking off my glasses and holding the project six inches from my face and paying way too much attention to the process. But it does look good with the self-striping yarn I'm using for the rest of the sock. 

Death and the Viking's Daughter by Loretta Ross

I've told you how much I love the Auction Block mysteries, right? The fourth book in the series has a lot to enjoy. The old abandoned supper club that Wren is helping prepare for an upcoming auction was designed after another club that went up in flames years earlier, which gives the reader some vicarious urban exploration in a building I'd love to see in real life. The house Wren and Death are hoping to buy has a dead body in the rose bushes, which the owners had buried there back in 1992 and everyone else in town already knew about. And one of the viking reenactors at the settlement next to the supper club is sure he saw the ghost of his missing daughter. Everything I love about this series keeps getting better and I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

Your socks look so pretty. When I've been using up my leftover pieces, I've just grabbed whatever, with no conscious plan to match things because most of my yarns are variegated. I don't think I have enough to plan out a pretty matching color from one to the other. They will keep my feet warm no matter the color, right?
