The Sock-a-thon continues!

More finished socks...

The first is made with Classic Elite's new sock yarn, Alpaca Sox in colourway "Garden". It's gorgeous yarn and is so very soft. The fibre is 60% alpaca, 20% merino, 20% nylon. I made these socks using a size 1 needle. The pattern is Monkey Bars from Wildhorse Farms. The pattern is very simple and easy to memorise...the perfect portable project! Both the pattern and the yarn were bought from The Loopy Ewe.

The second sock is made with Dream In Color Smooshy sock yarn (my new VERY favourite!!) in colourway "Deep Seaflower". The pattern is "Small Tiles" from More Sensational Knitted Socks. It was simple and easy to memorise. I used a size 2 needle.

The third sock is also made with Dream In Color Smooshy, this time in "Good Luck Jade". The pattern, also from MSKS, is "Lattice Stitch", also simple to make. Again, I used a size 2 needle. These yarns were also purchased from The Loopy Ewe.

Very nice socks! My LYS has the Alpaca Sox stocked so I was able to get a nice feel. It's my short list. I'm so glad that you did the Small Tiles pattern. I've been eyeing that a future pair of socks for me.
