In the past week or so I’ve finished two pairs of socks. Both were started before we moved. The gold Paraphernalia socks got finished. Paraphernalia – that’s a word that if I stop in the middle of typing it, I have to back space and start completely over — cannot pick up where I left off and keep going. Good thing the socks weren’t that way!
Christmas night, I finished these.
I think it’s Debbie Bliss yarn and it feels so good but it was a bit slippery on my needles. My favorite needles are Quicksilver by Susan Bates. They’re fairly inexpensive and even though I’ve tried others, some outrageously expensive and some not, I always come back to the Quicksilver needles and wonder why I tried anything new. Everyone has their preferences and Quicksilver is mine.
Having finished two socks to complete two pairs brought me to the big decision making process of what to make next.
In my Ravelry queue and favorites, there were about 3 dozen sock patterns. I narrowed it down to these:
Or Jeck –
Or, Cranberry Tort –
The winner, and the next pair of socks I’ll start is Olympic Copper
The yarn I’m using is Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock and the color is Nighmare’s Night Out! How fun is that?
