The Day Has Come...Almost

And I'm not talking about election day, though the title is befitting of that as well. No! I am speaking of Malabrigo Sock yarn! The sock version of my most favorite yarn in the world! I just pre-ordered a skein from Webs. One day, one day in late November/December, this yarn will be mine at last! muhaha!

It was so very, very hard to pick just one...

My, Aren't you Fetching?

*my goodness, my guinness!*
Pattern: Fetching
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca
Needles: Size 6 dpns

I heart this pattern for sure. Easy, quick, fun. I learned a lot of new things, and it's been awhile since I learned some new knitting tricks. I learned the cable cast - on, made cables and did a thumb gusset. Good times! I have also immediately displaced them. Opps.

I really like the Ultra Alpaca. Probably not the best choice to show off the cables, but it was in the stash and there's still enough left over to make another pair.

Maybe I will use it for my big seasonal project...or maybe it will fall by the wayside as I am tempted with more little things.
