I have started one of those self-imposed sock clubs. I picked twelve yarns from the stash, matched them to twelve sock patterns I had queued up, put it all in paper lunch bags, stapled the bags shut, and literally tossed them into my office closet. I gave my husband the honor of choosing the first bag and he did a great job. He chose–at random–one of the yarn and pattern combos I was most excited about.
Finished this afternoon:
Pattern is Kalajoki by Finnish knitter Tiina Seppala, yarn is Malabrigo Sock. Kalajoki is a river in Finland and the off-center pattern winds like a river down the leg and foot. It was fun to knit an off-center pattern and the toes are anatomical, which I dreaded doing but turned out to be far less complicated than it sounds.
Next up, my husband picked another awesome yarn, Berroco Sox Metallic. Nothing like a little sparkle in dreary February.
