090123 simple stripes

simple socks
pattern: my own (my ravelry link)
knitpicks simple stripes in vineyard
2 skeins | 231 yds : 50 g | 75 wool : 25 nylon
started: January 10, 2009
needles: US #1 2.25 mm knitpicks nickel plated options
notes: figure 8, toe up cast on 10, increased to 64.  basic 2×2 rib.

this is a discontinued yarn.  i loved the old knitpicks sock yarn.   very durable and not squeaky like the new essential.  the new essential is just okay.  and i would knit with it if i *loved* the colorway, which i do in the kettle dyes.

i happen to love knitpicks.  yarn snobs be damned!!  the lace yarns (gloss and shadow) are fantastic and while in the past the color choices were not to my taste, they are now becoming more sophisticated.  add to that the pointy and inexpensive options needles….and an obsession is born.
