again?

second time around

i really liked how the previous pair of hexagon socks came out, so i was lured into knitting another pair. this pattern is really great for those self striping yarns with short repeats.

this time, i'm using deborah norville's 'serenity sock weight' yarn in colorway spring fling.

i was at the joann fabric store the other day, and the 'serenity' yarns were 2 for $5. so, these will be $5 socks (actually, $100,000 socks, considering over 20 years worth of knitting experience, plus the time put into the actual knitting).

short colorful blips

this is my first time using the serenity sock yarn. i'll be sure to let y'all know whether or not i like it. so far, i do like it fine.

ps. i don't intend to take another year to knit these, but, anything is possible!

Oh, I loved the serenity sock yarn! I'll bet it's good for this pattern too, because the bamboo has the potential to make plain vanilla socks a bit slouchy. More structure = more pretty sock on your feet!

(love the pattern...going to find it now....)

Cheers!
