A couple of weeks ago I showed you the beginnings of a new pair of socks. That has been frogged. I just wasn’t loving the yarn and stitch pattern combination. I love the colors in the yarn, but it isn’t really knitting up well in the patterns I’ve tried with it (I’ve tried three). It’s in a time out for now.
In the meantime, I started another pair of socks, this time in a more subdued color way. The yarn is Malabrigo Sock in Lotus and the pattern is Hermione’s Everyday Socks. I’ve done this pattern before and enjoyed it and I knew it would work on this much more subdued color way. This is the first time I’ve used this yarn and I’m enjoying it. It knits quickly with no snagging or splitting and feels good in my hands. I’ve been using more Malabrigo in the last year and I’ve liked everything I’ve done with it. I’ve also loved the colors. The Lotus is pretty and it’s interesting, but it hasn’t grabbed me by the throat the way Aguas and English Rose have. That’s probably a good thing because I don’t need three or four garments in each of their colors!
