We found the main coyote den.
See? It was warm in the sun.
Sock of the Day #6Pulled Taffy from Decadent Fibers. It's 55% Mohair, 45% Merino, and hand dyed beautifully (as are all yarns from the Decadent gals). It's listed as sportweight, but I knit it like a heavy fingering weight with my usual sock pattern. I think the colorway was Salsa, and the tones have faded just a bit in the last couple of years, but the yarn is holding up like iron.
The socks are toasty and and extremely comfy.
And since I finally finished the Koigu Mini Cables, I was able to cast on a new Road Sock.
This yarn is Kiddie Scoop Soft Serve, from CraftsMeow. I picked up 4 coordinating mini skeins (all greens) at the Sock Summit. I was intending to knit a pair of this style Mitered Square socks, adapting this pattern (knitting a plain foot in the round). But I realized that I needed some truly mindless knitting to offset the book work.
So plain bands it is, and they'll be very cute, I think. This yarn is soft and lovely, and I'm enjoying working with it on the few moments I can steal away from deadline stuff. I'm taking a short road trip today, so I'll probably get to the heel of this one by the time we get back home.
And speaking of Sock Summit- I am hearing through the grapevine that there will be another in Portland in '11. I am so there.
