all done!

finished angee sockens

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!

zauberball in grashalm

very very soft sockina cotton

and very very pretty malabrigo sock in 'archangel'

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

Gorgeous! I've been avoiding my LYS like the plague lately but your new sock yarn acquisitions just made me want to go down there and see what's new. You are officially a bad influence! *flounce*

I want to get my hands on a Zauberball. It looks cool! I LOVE those socks though. Such an interesting stitch pattern. It really makes for some awesome socks.

those came out stunning!!! What a beautiful pattern! the Zauberball is pretty neat - I'll have to take a look at some more on Ravlery....

I really like that pattern! Do the socks stay up pretty well even though you said the yarn wasn't very elastic?

The sampler sock pattern from is a fun pattern for the Sockina cotton. I am knitting that pattern right now!

Your socks from the cookie a book are amazing! I am patiently awaiting the arrival of that book in the mail. Can't wait! :-)
