Yarn: Wollmeise 100% in Single Malt

I love Yarnissima patterns. I have no idea what took me so long to finish these socks. I love them. I love the folded cuff even thought it drove me crazy while I was knitting them – I forgot the number 1 rule of following a pattern: FOLLOW THE PATTERN. Anyway, they are done. These are for sure, Rhinebeck socks. I didn’t think I would like this colorway of Wollmeise but I love it knit up.
Next up are the socks that I knit as a test knit for Yarnissima, Gush, or the June/July Mystery sock for the Solid Socks group on ravelry.

Yarn: Kashmir by Fiber Optic Yarns, Raspberry colorway
Needle: US 1.5 Addi Lace
I LOVE these socks. Sharon got me the yarn this year at Maryland Sheep & Wool as I was unable to attend – and ooh she done good. Kashmir is an 80/10/10 blend of Superwash Merino/Cashmere/Nylon. We’ll also be getting this blend in our shop soon – we just have to dye it, but I love this sock base. So warm. Mmm. This colorway was very hard to capture correctly while photographing but I think I finally got it.
Whew. Two full pairs! Yay! I’m currently working on reknitting a pair of Dawn Gnot for the CSI: KAL – I hope to get past the first heel turn this weekend. More on Sunday hopefully!
