Grey socks - Qualified Perceptions

Grey socks
I am almost sorry to be done with this yarn - Anzula Squishy - which is indeed squishy, and soft, and just a little thicker than most sock yarn, not enough to mess up the gauge but enough to make the fabric comfortably cushy. Grey for New York City, where it came from. The pattern is Pointelle, from one of Cookie's books, which means it's interesting (asymmetry! lace!) on top of the standard flap-and-gusset, which is generally my favorite construction.

You could make more socks in that yarn?

Looks like a fun pattern.

Yeah, I'm thinking about ordering more. Though my sock yarn intake really does outstrip my sock output, so it's a little silly. :)

You can turn sock yarn into things that are not socks! (Which takes about as long per unit of yarn and thus helps not at all.)

Not collecting shiny materials is hard.

Wow, you make that yarn sound deliciously decadent.
