This was the seventh 2012 Christmas present, code name “Eagle.” I bought this yarn back in August at the Midwest Stitches convention for my mom, code name Black Mamba. I knew back then that I’d make her a pair of socks for Christmas. I didn’t want plain stockinette socks because I’m teaching her how to make those on her own.
The pattern needs a solid color to pull it off completely. This tonal yarn hid a lot of it especially on the leg portion. I ended up skipping one of the repeats because it was hard to see the pattern anyway and I was happy with the length it was.
I have enough yarn left over that I’m going to make a basic pair of socks for myself. I like the feel and color of this yarn. I’m running out of room to store all my yarn so I want to use up any partial skeins instead of adding it to my stash!
