February socks

The personal sock club is the best idea I never had.  I am enjoying myself immensely, even if I am not quite keeping up.  I am only a bit behind in the knitting, albeit months behind in the sharing.

For the February pair I was delighted beyond words when my husband pulled the bag containing Berroco Sox Metallic in Curacao.  I bought this yarn last summer while vacationing in Boston.  Good times!  Love Boston.

I paired the yarn with the Charade pattern by Sandra Park.  I was unhappy with the pattern at first, thinking it fiddly and the fabric unyielding.  Once past the first leg, I got the pattern down and, after trying the unfinished sock on a few times, had to also admit that it actually was a good fabric, not floppy or stiff.

I like these socks a great deal.

The color is a bit of a change for me, blues and grays.

The one thing about these socks that I would leave behind is February.  Gray, dismal, wet, snowy, cold February is a burden on me more and more every year.

At least I will have some beautiful socks to keep me warm next year.
