i finished these last night. i was eager to get them off the needles so i don't feel any guilt when i cast on for something new (which ... i already did).
and, i got some fresh socken yarn!
i'm thinking the sockina will get played with first as i don't have a mindless project right now. the zauberball might not even end up as socks, but perhaps a scarf or triangular shawl. and the malabrigo? ... it might end up as something from _sock innovation_.
i have been doing very good knitting from stash lately, and knitting up the new stuff quickly. but, if i were to be locked in my house for X years, i still wouldn't have to worry about running out of sock yarn. it's nice!
specs for socken above:
yarn: all things heather merino tencel
pattern: angee from _sock innovation_
needles: 2.25mm clover dpns
mods: none, except knitting a few plain rounds before toe decreases
