Opal factory sample socks

Here is my April pair. The yarn is Opal factory sample color, shade 2061. I ordered it from Marianne's Opalwolle last summer. It's the only place where I've seen Opal sample lines. I like the color combination.

I have another stash pair on the needles, but I'm not sure if I'm going to make it in April. For May I'm planning to use some stash merino. Although I like knitting solids and using lovely patterns, I always fall back to simple stockinette stitch and let the yarn do the work. I can knit those socks while I watch tv, read e-books or when my toddlers decide at 3.30 AM that it's morning and they don't want to sleep any longer.
