February's project started

I decided earlier that I'm going to knit SixSox-pattern and yesterday morning pattern was released. And pattern is awesome! It was quite difficult to choose yarn for this project. I had three yarns to choose from and after some thinking I chose Reynold's Soft Sea Wool. I've got this yarn from my Knitter's Tea Swap 3 pair and I have been thinking about perfect project for this yarn. Yarn is pure merino wool (I'm little bit skeptic about durability) with quite much twist. I knit it with 2 mm needles.

I casted these socks about four hours ago (and haven't knitted all the time) and my socks look like this. I really love the pattern it is based on Cat Bordhi's Upstream sock architecture.

Now I have to go to the supermarket to buy some food for weekend, after that I just enjoy knitting my new socks. I hope that these socks are going to fit my own feet.

Have a nice weekend!
