More Vanilla Socks

I posted about my Leftover Blackberry socks yesterday. I did manage to complete the first sock and boy it is a shortie! It’s an ankle sock for sure. But it’s got an issue for another blog post. And the second sock is ready for the gusset. Not very conducive to easy knitting without looking or counting. So I dug out new needles and new yarn to start ANOTHER pair of vanillas.

  
The yarn is some Premier Deborah Norville Serenity sock weight in the Picasso marble color way. It’s 50% merino, 25% rayon bamboo, and 25% nylon so I’m hoping for a hard wearing sock. I’m undecided about the bamboo content. I got this yarn for $1 a skein at Joanns on a whim so no harm done if I don’t like it.

This pair is going to be a toe up vanilla with afterthought heel since I have two full skeins. Above is my progress just this morning. Being able to knit makes me both love and hate training, lol.

Happy Knitting!
