Pattern is mine. Short row toe and heels knit toe-up with 2.75 mm dpns.
The yarn is being clearanced out by Knitpicks and I think we know why. It's 100% merino wool sock yarn called Memories in the color-way Pansy.
I do like the toes and almost like the heels, and, in an odd change of pace, the photos are better than the socks in person.
I have two more skeins of this brand of yarn in a different color-way. While I don't like the idea of working off both skeins for each sock, I really don't see a way around it.
With longer color repeats, I think this yarn and these socks would be much better. I hope I'm right because I really like the other color-way I have in the stash. There may be more of it coming my way, too...
Really something, aren't they? o.0
And I want to thank ya'll for the comments and love yesterday.
As my favorite little assuming lurker was told last night, there was more than one man involved in the hating of yesterday. While I'm not done hating, I will most likely live.
Last night, I realized that I had to harvest my mint before the spraying happened. I garden as organically as I can and the West Nile spraying was not something I had a vote on. So...
Last night was mojito night here at Shut Up & Knit! and a good time was had by all. Now I'm thinking I need more mint, so I can do it again tonight since there is more spraying coming...
No clue what tomorrow will bring here in the knitting blog. Although, the current front runner is photos of someone else's cat.
Yeah, one of those weeks.
Happy Tuesday, people!
