pattern : Ribbed for Him Socks by Marie Godsey
yarn : James C. Brett Woodlander Double Knitting in L5
needle : US 3[3.25 mm]
size : 9.5
I really really needed this project. It was a really nice transition from the monotony of my last few sock projects to my next-in-line, and also became a much-needed addition to the sock drawer. And it's so squishy!The pattern called for about 275 yards of yarn but the plan was for size 10 feet, fortunately, mine are a bit smaller. I'm pretty glad to have this small amount of yarn left over for future repairs, or maybe even a fantastic scrap yarn project in the future. Or, more realistically, a ton of repairs in the much nearer future. Acrylic doesn't seem to be the best yarn for socks (Jason can attest for sure), but I have too much fun stashing the cute variegated yarn I find in LYS's! I'll make my next sock-stash addition a nylon-blend..or whatever it is that's most hard-wearing and easy-care around. Spring is really kicking into gear here, so it's green green green wherever we walk, as opposed to the shades of grey we had just a few months ago. I'm enjoying the fresh-air for sure, even if it's pollen-city whenever I leave the house (not the most fun). It's ridiculous how wet the weather is here compared to socal. It rains once, and every plant is a foot taller. Here's to temperate climates and precipitation!
