Sock progress

I finished a lingering project this weekend and did some swatching for my mom's birthday sweater this weekend, so my sock is growing slowly. 

Just over halfway to the starting the heel flap.

Winterbark Socks

Here's a recent FO. First pair of socks with cashmere in the yarn. Almost makes me wish it was cool enough to wear them, almost.

More like it

Sludgey, murky, and neutral in all the right ways.


Malabrigo sock yarn in Pocion. I bought three skeins of Malabrigo from Simply Socks a few weeks ago. 

These will go well with most of my wardrobe. This colorway would be great for guy socks, too!

Life is too short to knit ugly socks

These are going to the front pond post haste.


I'm bummed to not have any knitting for my commute home, but I have lots of better looking yarn to spend my time on!
