The personal sock club is the best idea I never had. I am enjoying myself immensely, even if I am not quite keeping up. I am only a bit behind in the knitting, albeit months behind in the sharing.
For the February pair I was delighted beyond words when my husband pulled the bag containing Berroco Sox Metallic in Curacao. I bought this yarn last summer while vacationing in Boston. Good times! Love Boston.
I paired the yarn with the Charade pattern by Sandra Park. I was unhappy with the pattern at first, thinking it fiddly and the fabric unyielding. Once past the first leg, I got the pattern down and, after trying the unfinished sock on a few times, had to also admit that it actually was a good fabric, not floppy or stiff.
I like these socks a great deal.
The color is a bit of a change for me, blues and grays.
The one thing about these socks that I would leave behind is February. Gray, dismal, wet, snowy, cold February is a burden on me more and more every year.
At least I will have some beautiful socks to keep me warm next year.
