Well, the weather is getting chilly here in Vermont! I woke up this morning to 33 degrees (F)! Our entire house, with the exception of our master bedroom, has hard wood flooring, so my little tootsies were positively glacial this morning. I decided to CO a pair of mindless vanilla socks while I am waiting for my needles to arrive to start another lace poncho. Immediately, this skein of yarn called out to me! It's String Theory Colorworks' Resonance Self-Striping in the Oenology colorway. (Oenology is the art of wine making.) This is just the perfect colorway for fall! With the even, 5-stripe repeat, these will make cute socks! Resonance is a 100% SW Merino base. Since I normally knit with a SW Merino/Nylon blend, I decided that these puppies would be house socks instead of socks I tried to stuff into shoes. I like my handknit socks to have nylon in them for shoe-wearing only because they tend to wear better in shoes, conforming to feet better, with less shift in the shoe. So I decided to knit these on a tad bigger needle since I just want them to be warm, cozy, house socks. I'm using the Gusset Heel Basic Socks pattern by Wendy D. Johnson and knitting them on a US Size 2 1/2, 40" circular needle.
Do y'all have socks on the needles right now? If so, what pattern/yarn?
