Running on schedule.
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!

That is a beautiful pattern, and I especially love the colourway! Nicely done! It is too bad you might not be able to wear them until next fall, but then again it is always fun to have new socks waiting to be worn when the cooler weather hits.
Those socks are awesome! I can see why they'd make you crave dessert! I was also catching up on your other posts (I'm slightly behind in my blog reading!) I absolutely love the dinosaur hat and the beginnings of your Mad Men dress challenge! You are one talented lady!
