KWCG Sock of the Month Club - March Socks Announced

**drum roll please**  Announcing the third pair of socks for 2011 - knitting for March - (crowd is cheering and clapping) - the Broadripple Socks from Knitty.com, Summer 2003, by Rob Matyska.

I am happy to say that he wrote up the translation for 2 circs which took some of the work out of it for me. Thank you, thank you.

I will be casting these on size 1US (2.25mm) with a candy stripe sock yarn I found on sale this weekend. I know, I said it would be from stash, but March demanded something bright and off the usual color scheme I had going, so this yarn became stash as soon as I bought it at 50% off. Enough justification, on to knitting.

The yarn is Indulgence Narrow with Aloe in colorway 113. It is superwash merino wool with nylon. It looks like it will be yummy to knit and should show off the ripple pattern with some fun colors.

I will keep you posted on the progress. I am parking Dad's sock for a couple days, it is 6 inches down the foot (need 9 inches before I do the toe).

I hope everyone has fun things to start for March~!

I'm fairly certain that I will have to do a major rework on the bottom of my shawl. The "stripes" are all too narrow, and it has lost the "crisp" look it had. Tonight after work, I dive into my stash and find all of my Sophie's Toes in red(ish) colorways. Then I make the final decision.

I'm sure there will be frogging involved. *sigh*
