CHOO CHOO! Chuggu chugga chugging right along; March socks have arrived.
The pattern is Aquaphobia by Crystal Flanagan. I was inspired to knit these socks when I first saw them on BigMonkeyPie's list of socks to start. A knitter can never have too many pattern options when it comes to pooling sock yarns, am I right?! I really love the texture of these socks. The fabric is substantial and sturdy. And I really like the way the heel flap is integrated into the leg patterning.
I knit with Socks that Rock lightweight, but I seem to have misplaced my tag, and can't for the life of me figure out which colorway these are in. What I can say, it constantly had me craving dessert, like some sort of chocolate, raspberry ice cream something or other.... MMMMmmm....
As you can see, I did still get a bit of color pooling over the top of the foot, but it's relatively minor and liekly non-visible on a shoed foot.
As much as I am thrilled with my newest pair of socks, I regretfully don't think they'll be worn until fall. It's basically sandal weather here in Chicago! (Not that it will stop me from knitting socks through the summer :-D)
Have a wonderful weekend! I'm going to do my best to stay focused, but sunshine and fresh air are hard to compete with!
