This latest pair came about by accident. My friend Jo's mom kindly unloaded part of her stash, and Jo brought over a whole bag of yarn for a few of us to go through. I chose my yarn, and after everyone left I found a lonely skein of sock yarn that had fallen off the table.
Thus was born Alex's latest pair of socks, requested for Christmas but delivered a teensy bit late.
Pattern: Waffle Rib Sock by Carolyn (Jill) Ferneau
Yarn: Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball®Crazy (I think it's color #1537, but not entirely sure)
I've made this same sock pattern several times. It's one of Alex's favorites, but I share the waffle love with all. Here are the other socks I've made with this same pattern:
I'm also really digging the Eye of Partridge heel. It has such a neat texture and makes other heel types look so boring.
When I didn't know what the yarn was, I worked up this tiny little swatch and put it through the washer to see what happened. I love how such a cool yarn can look so inconspicuous when it's worked in such short rounds.
