Yesterday I finally had enough time to finish my River Seine Socks! Ok, so it was during the student presentations in one of my History classes, but at this point I’m going to take advantage of anything I can get.
For those of you keeping score at home, these are By the Seine River socks. I really enjoyed this pattern! The lace was pretty mindless and easy, but it had a great effect. It was the perfect pattern for how crazy my life is right now. Oh, and, as per usual, I modded them to make them toe-up.
I ended up using exactly half of a 100g skein of Candy Skein Yummy (75% Merino, 25% Nylon) in the Butter Mints colorway. I will admit that this stuff isn’t exactly the softest yarn to knit with, although I’ve noticed that it does soften a little with washing. Still, it makes some hard-wearing fabric, which is EXACTLY what most of us are looking for in a sock yarn. Tami has outdone herself, as per usual, with the colorway. I’m usually not a huge pastel fan, but something about these colors are a little bit more grown up then the usual baby pinks and blues. I actually won this skein in a give-away, and I’m so so so so so thankful- it made some beautiful socks!
