Sock club number 3.

Chose kit number 3 last night - cast on, knit the twisted rib and one pattern repeat then realised that the Colinette Jitterbug was too bulky and too busy for the Embossed Leaf pattern by Mona Schmidt. I ripped it out this morning after sleeping on it. The above yarn was a present from Mistress Pie for my birthday and I have decided to make a yarn sub over a pattern sub. This is a pattern I've been meaning to knit for ages and I think the longer colour runs, the palette of colours, the yarn weight and yardage will be much better. Have balled it up and it's looking really gorgeous.

Time to cast on.........................again.
