Pattern: My basic sock recipe
Yarn: Fearless Fibers super wash merino 'sublime'
Needles: US #1 dpn's
I really like this yarn, the end fabric is sturdy and soft, although it is pilling a bit. I am not put off by pilling since all of my sweaters and socks receive a good amount of wear time. Holding a 30 pound toddler has slightly felted the front and sides of almost every sweater I own. The wear and tear on a mother's wardrobe is loves collateral damage. I digress. The socks haven't left my feet for a couple of days. Yep, that is how much I like them.
Speaking of sock yarn, Ashley has opened her own Etsy shop and I am so excited to have ordered some of her lovely yarn. She has an eye for color combos. I had a tough time deciding what to buy since almost every one called my name. I also struggled with the idea of telling y'all about her, because I want all of the yarns for myself, but she needs more than one client. Check out her hand dyed goodness at Enchanted Fibers.
I chose two colorways for the Project Spectrum months of April and May that represent the element earth. I want to take my time with these yarns, so instead of my usual stockinette, I want to knit a patterned sock. Please help me choose a sock pattern that meets these requirements: no cables, easily memorized pattern repeats, relatively quick, not jaywalker (have done those). Thanks for your suggestions! I am also open to any finger weight shawl or scarf ideas.
