I can't believe my optimism at the start of this year - putting 12 packages of yarn away for my personal sock club 2009. I'm only up to package #5!!! Oh dear! Well, I think if I can knit up half the packages by the end of this year I'll be quite happy. (It's not like I haven't knit other socks this year too). And then I'll still have 6 lovely packages waiting for me in 2010.
So here's package #5. What is it, I hear you all wondering?
Ta da!! ShibuiKnits Sock yarn, in "pebble". Quite variegated, and a very different colour range than that I normally go for. Oh well, nothing wrong with a bit of variety. Or maybe these will end up as a gift for someone.
I had only one pattern idea for these when I put them in the package at the start of the year, and that is the pattern I've decided to go with.
Yes, No-purl Monkeys. A very nice variation on the Cookie A pattern from Knitty. I like this very much. Only 4 pattern rows out of 11.
Easy to remember and quick to knit. Just what I need right now!
