I almost didn't make it! At 4:30pm yesterday I realized that I hadn't finished a September pair of socks for the Sock-a-month KAL. Luckily I found something quick to knit and was finished the pair by 10:30pm. I won't be cutting it this close next month!
I weighed my options, and realized that my best bet was to use this tight timeline to try out a little pair of worsted weight socks in the Little Sky Sock pattern from Cat Bordhi's new book, New Pathways For Sock Knitters.
I used some left over worsted weight Malabrigo in the Bobby Blue (27) colorway.
I was fortunate enough to pick up this book about 2 weeks ago from my LYS, and I'm happy I did. I am also happy I started with a little sock instead of diving right in with a big one. I think the combination of unfamiliar construction along with lettered stitch markers may have caused me a little confusion, but it all was sorted out in the end. There is something about the Malabrigo that is not letting me waste a single scrap. I believe it is as close to heaven as a yarn can come.
