First FO of 2007!!!!
Here are my socks, my socks, my first finished object of 2007!!!!
Yarn: Skeintily Clad colorway "The Greener Side" (she currently has some available in her Etsy shop)
Needles: Size 3 and 2 Clover bamboo
Plain and simple pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks
Started: December 28, 2006
Finished: January 6, 2007
This yarn feels awesome. It's so soft that it reminds me of Malabrigo, which means that I'm certain it's going to pill like a mofo.
I've also been referring to these as my "green anole socks", because the colorway is a few shades of green, with some white and the tiniest bit of blue thrown in, much like a green anole. Around the house, I've also called them "Borden socks" because ZMrK had a green anole named Borden (and one named Lizzy, but Lizzy didn't live very long). The minute I saw this yarn at the Bazaar Bizaree, I know I had to have it.
What would I do differently next time? I'd probably buy two skeins and make them over-the-knee socks! (I have plenty left over from the one 270-yard skein, which should come in handy if and when I need to make repairs).
Did you see the little yarn cake in between my feet?
I just wound up the yarn that was the first of Lucy's sock club at Mind's Eye Yarns. This particular colorway won't be available to the general public for a while, but she also has an Etsy shop.
I think I'm going to try something fancy with this yarn.
