Year of Socks – Sock 5

Firstly, thank you SO MUCH for all the positive feedback you guys have given me on Timenoguy! It’s currently being test knit and I hope to have it available for you very soon. I was so happy to see how well received the shawl is, and can’t wait to have it published so the rest of you can get a chance to make some lovely color choices of your own. 🙂

Going back to my year of socks, though, I needed to share the last pair I’ve worked on because these may possibly be my all-time favorite pair of socks ever!

Rhombus - FINISHED

Meet Rhombus, a sock that was at first a pain to knit up (I mean that literally as well figuratively) and yet became a lot of fun towards the end and actually was a memorizable pattern too!

The yarn is perfect for it, as well, IMO. It’s just the right amount of variegated to give it interest without subtracting from the pattern. It’s also oh-so-soft and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of it! This is the Sheepaints BFLaine Plus that I posted about receiving a few months ago. I loved it then and I love it even more now that it’s knit up!

I’m so excited that I kept going with these socks even through the pain (fiddly cables are no fun)… they are just perfect!
