Dancing Bamboo Socks with Lorna's Laces Stitches West Peppermint Mocha. I LOVED this yarn and couldn't wait to cast on for some socks. I pulled them out of my very own 'sock of the month club' bin and had them paired with the dancing bamboo pattern. ECK! What a terrible combination - actually - I think the yarn is terrible in this number of stitches. I'm thinking maybe Baby Jays - something smaller so it doesn't quite look like St. Valentine threw up on these socks. ugh!
So I tore these out and flipped the coin again... I drew *these* socks the second time - yea! And coupled with my fave sock yarn - double yea!! I wasn't stoked about paying $6 for a sock pattern, but I think after the first sock I will say - Love! Soo worth it - totally love them!
Anklet - love! Pattern - love! Short-row heel - hate!
Well, as Meatloaf says, "Two out of three aint bad!" And with anklet length and a long car ride - I am half done with the second one too. Woo-hoo!! Not loving the brown top (should have gone more 'fun' but alas - its only ten rows - if I really want to change it later I can). So yea - I'm baaack! Knitting AND posting!
