River Rapids

Socks #5 for the year. I really, really enjoyed knitting this pattern. It was easy to memorize and work up.


Specs:
Pattern: River Rapids by Sockbug
Yarn: Berroco Metallic Sox Durian
Needles: 0 dpn's for ribbing & 1 US dpn's for body of sock
Size: 10
Started: February 15, 2009 Finished: February 28, 2009

I would knit this pattern again in a heartbeat. I'm not so sure about the Berroco Sox. I found it to be very splitty and had to make stitch adjustments numerous times. I do like the color and patterning.

I've casted on pair #6 with Red Heart Heart and Sole with Aloe and I love the way it feels. I'm going to work the Welt Fantastic from SKS. It is written to take advantage of self-striping yarns.

The weather forecast for tomorrow evening calls for 3"-5" of snow possibly more. I hope it does come through. I would love to have an extra day to knit and have the fire going. It is unusual for us to get snow period and even more unusual for this time of year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Nice socks! They look lovely in this color, too bad the yarn is splitty! I hope you got your wish of snow. :o)
