New socks = happy dance

I love my entrelac socks so much that I want to make another pair. (Not that you can see much of the socks in this picture, but it was Crafty Mom Weekend, and I was wearing them!)

My LYS, Twisted, didn’t have more Yarntini Sport in a color I wanted, so I bought some LavenderSheep Superwash Sport. I finished most of one cuff and realized that this yarn didn’t want to be entrelac socks, or at least not the entrelac socks from my pattern. I’m never afraid to rip and start over, especially if yarn tells me that it wants to be something else. Apparently this yarn wanted to be plain old ribbed socks.

But they’re really not plain. The colors are wonderful; I love how the purple and blue spiral down the leg. And I added a baby cable to the 2×2 rib. It adds a little pizazz, and it makes it easy to count the number of rounds so the second sock can match.

 I’ll find another yarn to make the entrelac socks. The hunt is on!
