New Socks

March 20, 2009

These socks only took about two days to knit.  I am so used to knitting socks on zeroes and ones that I felt like I was knitting with pencils.  It didn’t feel right to be knitting socks on size four needles.  Actually, I wish now that I had at least gone down to a size three with this yarn.  It is Fiesta Ballet, 50% baby Alpaca and 50% Tencel.  It feels marvelous.  But, I am not certain that it is appropriate for socks.  Except for a little variance in the ribbing, there was nothing interesting.  I will probably never use this pattern again or will I ever use this yarn for socks.  Come to think of it, I don’t think there is anything I would want to make with this yarn.
