Remember these socks? They are finally off the needles. I did not enjoy working on them. It was a combination of the pattern (Monkey Socks) and the yarn which is Wisdom Yarns North Pole. To make matters worse, the yarn had a strand of mylar spun into it for bling. It not only made the sock stiff but also scratchy. Nope, not a fan.
There are three more skeins in the yarn stash of this yarn, but different colorways. I am not making socks with them, but I think I'll make some scarves and decorate the statues on the street where I work. Yarn bombing! of a sort. I know they will disappear and that is fine with me.
'Chinese Red Vest' (pattern by Cheryl Oberle) [that's a Ravelry link btw]. I am running out of yarn. Yes, I know, right? This version might not have the collar because of lack of the right yarn. That blue striped item is a ribbed K2P2 scarf. This is some of that yarn with the mylar in it and it will be the first scarf that will be yarn bombed.
