This is the most traveled pair of socks ever. While in-process, these have been back and forth to the Philippines 4 times in the last year. It's hard to knit when it's warm - but this was a nice yarn for the trip. The colorway, Aquarium Shimmer Sock by Sereknity, felt tropical, and the blend, 60% superwash merino,30% bamboo, 10% nylon, felt nice even when it was warm and muggy. It has a lovely, silky sheen that doesn't really show up in the photo.
A pair of socks (fraternal twins) from a skein of Trekking XXL that I've had in the stash for several years.
This is the beaded rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks.
Finished this just in time for the new great-nephew. Blast-off Cardigan in the Classic Boy colorway.
