Woah, an FO!
Pattern: Smocked Socks
Yarn: Berroco Alpaca Sox
Needles: US 2
Notes: This was a really easy pattern to memorize and very cool the way it "smocked." The smocking is kind of hard to see in the pictures though. But I do love the coloring of this yarn and don't think it was a bad choice for this pattern.
I'm not sure I'm in love with the wear of this yarn. I just washed these for the first time and if you think the color obscures the smocking, you should see the fuzzy halo that obscures it now!
Ah well, they're still warm and comfy, so who really cares?
Less than a week now until Rhinebeck! It's my first (and probably only time) going and I'm quite excited.
I'm actually hoping to find some non-sock yarn.
Why? Because my non-sock yarn stash was lost in a tragic twist of events this past summer.
The twist of events is also why my clock radio is encased in a plastic baggie now until January 2013.
Now I just need to come up with some projects to shop for yarn for!
