FO: Yarn Pirate Socks
The weather we're having right now isn't conducive to taking photos outside in natural light, so I've only got a sub-par pic to show you. It's a shame, because they are truly lovely socks and this picture doesn't do them justice. (The picture on this post may have more accurate colors.)
I'm pretty happy with them. Since they are knit in stockinette, I don't think they'll be as warm as some of my handmade socks. There are many stitch patterns that create a thicker fabric, but here I just wanted to show off the colors and striping. They were quick to knit up and they fit well. Plus I love the pink/purple/gray color combination. Yum!
I really want to cast on for another pair of socks, but I'm paralyzed by indecision. Should I start the Kimono Socks in my black Louet Gems yarn? Or the Stephen Colbert Socks with my green Smooshy yarn? Then there are the Sweetheart Socks from IK that I queued ages ago and bought some red Regia for, not to mention my Smooshy Sock yarn in Black Parade that I'm dying to use but can't seem to choose a pattern for...well, if this is the most difficult choice I have to make right now, I believe I am quite fortunate!
