March socks.............................

I finally grafted the last toe last night. The new wooden blockers are lovely. They are the second 'extra' in the Socktopus Bells and Whistles Sock Club. There is a lovely cut-out motif of a ball of yarn and needles, thank you Alice.

The socks are No Purl Monkeys in Posh Yarns Emily ~ Pomegranate. Dpns 2.75mm and a 14 stitch pattern instead of 16 stitches. The cuff is a 2x2 rib instead of twisted rib. I just think it suits the yarn better. :)


I also finished the first of another pair of No Purl Monkeys in Fiesta Baby Boomerang ~ Rainforest. Dpns 2.5mm and a full 16 stitch pattern. This sock also has a 2x2 rib cuff. :) I really like this yarn, it is sleek and well twisted, a bit like STR or Jitterbug. As you can see, no pooling either. I got the yarn from The Loopy Ewe.
One more sock to go and then to cast on for my Monkey Sock Swap 4 socks. :)

Lovely socks and the yarn looks so nice. The sock blockers are fabulous, I like the wooden ones.
