As promised, I went stash diving for a new travel project and came up with one of my favourite of our stripey colourways - Cheshire Cat - in Top Cat.
You can't find a yarn more opposite to the scratch Berroco Sox than our Top Cat - it's only 10% cashmere, but it makes all the difference. Soooooooooooooo soft!
I considered doing a plain vanilla, but I needed something a little more interesting. I chose, and discarded a dozen ripple patterns before finally settling on Nutkin.
And although this was intended to be commuter knitting, I won't be doing any commuting for a while. I've come down with the plague... I mean flu. So I'm stuck on the couch with barely the energy to knit.
I fear these socks may be tucked away until the new year. Of course, that's not too far off now!
