Iris Fine Yarns in Appleton, Wisconsin

I remember the exact day that I started these socks because it was election day and I knit the toe while Andrew was in some school gymnasium casting his vote. (I voted by mail… YEAH for a Blue New Mexico!)

I know that these socks are going to end up too big because I had to cast on 72 stitches for the 12 stitch repeat but the yarn is thicker than a standard fingering weight yarn. I still love them and I’m still knitting happily away on them.

I don’t know how I paired this pattern with this yarn. I don’t think if I were sane I ever would have paired the two since I don’t normally trust variegated yarn and textured patterns together but I love it and I’m glad I went temporarily insane.
