I told husby I'd finished and now it was time for another brown bag and he asked if he could pick it - but of course!
He put a lot of thought into it...
And selected this one, which he also wanted to open - because the yarn means so much to him, heh!
I was really happy - I'd actually forgotten I put this yarn (STR Lightweight in Beryl) in the club (see, perfect, it's working, this sock club thing!). I had a couple of pattern ideas, both cabled socks.
The green one (which is made in this very same yarn) is Tilting Cables by Chrissy Gardiner, published in IK Winter 2007. The blue one is Buried Treasure by Sivia Harding, published in Yarn Issue 8 (and also self-published by the designer). I checked them both out on Rav, and a few of the people who tried Tilting Cables found it too tight and frogged it. Since the Buried Treasure sock comes in two sizes, I thought it might be a better bet (although I'm not using the beads).
Cast on this afternoon (squeeeeeeeee!) - love how it's knitting up so far...but you'll have to wait for pics until another day (sorry!)
