My pick for February
I know I'm a little bit early, but I have some new yarns going on the needles and I wanted to pick my stash sock yarn for February so I wouldn't forget it.
This is Piece of Beauty merino sock yarn (discontinued), color Glacier Melt. I have two 50g skeins but only one is in the picture, because a year ago I tried to make Child's sock in Miranda Pattern from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage socks. It didn't work out at all. The Miranda pattern has odd leg shaping and when I tried the first sock on, it wasn't "shapely fit" at all, but looked like a pouch clinging from my leg. So I frogged the whole thing.
I think I'll make something lacy.
