The yarn that you see pictured above is all that remains of the Koigu (a.k.a. the yarn with the most notoriously short yardage this side of Jitterbug) for my sock swap. But guess what? The sock is completed and shipped off to its recipient, and since today is the deadline for mailing, that's a good thing. If only I could've adhered to such guidelines when completing my dissertation! But then I wouldn't have had the grand ole time with Effexor, and thus never known what it means to live on The Dark Side. In any case, after the dust had settled from me changing my mind as many times as Peeper-Lou and Tween Thing changed their minds about their Halloween costumes, this was a fun sock to make, and Koigu does come through for me once again.
Pattern: Socks that Rock Central Air
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM P116
Needles: size 1 addi turbos
Those of you who predicted and inferred that I am making the December Lights Tam out of the Finullgarn are correct! It is my next weekend project, but since the Cobblestone is only moments away from completion, I figure I should wrap that one so as to earn some points with the Darling Resident Marxist Curmudgeon. As I'm going to Chicago this weekend for a conference and will be hitting Loopy Yarns for some Malabrigo, a yarn that I have had a heck of a time getting my hands on, I'm sure to be on some thin ice when I get back. So Cobblestone, you have been warned, you are next!
