When you buy sock yarn

You better make some cute socks.

On the 23rd of September, my mom and I decided to investigate a LYS(The Grove ). I've been wanting to make myself some socks for...some odd reason, and I picked out some needles, and a colorway I found myself oddly attracted to.

Schoeller+Stahl Sock Yarn

And after many hours or dawdling about and watching tv, I wound it up.

Since then, I've been looking for a nice sock pattern to knit up. Now, fellow knitters, what has been your favorite sock pattern to use, or one you really enjoy? Thank you in advance!

Hmm, what else has been up with me? Enjoying this rain we've been getting ; ; Its so comforting! I've been wanting to work on my cosplay costumes for upcoming conventions. I still have two WIP cosplays, but I've sort of lost my drive to complete them, which saddens me =<
But there is one in particular I want to start on ASAP so I don't get angry and give up half way through... or go insane while working on it last minute. -sigh-

How have you all been?

  1. I really LOVED knitting my kai-mei socks and my circle socks. The Kai-Mei wouldn't be great for the yarn you're using, but it would be wonderful with the circle sock pattern! I love your yarn, it's going to make great socks!

  2. Don't really have any suggestions, the only socks I've ever knit were plain boring socks and the wonderful Pomatomus by Cookie A. I so have to start another sock :D lovely yarn also :)

  3. It's been raining like crazy here, too, which means I can't do my lab work :( So, in a way, what would be calmin is stressing me out!

    Whenever I see varigated yarn, I think Jaywalker socks. They're so easy to do, they're probably my favorite sock pattern of all I've done to date.

    That colorway might make good firestarter socks, too.

  4. Oooh, nice sock yarn! I've used that kind before, but I only made plain vanilla socks with it.
