sockapal-2-za update: making decisions

after going through numerous sock patterns and browsing through various brands of sock yarns- never crossed my mind that socks can be this complicated - i have decided to make the "friday harbor" lace socks in deep forest kroy yarns for my secret sock pal. friday harbor, the pattern from the wonderful "knitting on the road", involves some lace pattern, some ribbing and this knits to a calf length. all these are preferences stated by my sock pal. not to mention that *green* is her favorite color!

friday harbor sock is quite a popular one in the knitblog land, i found deb had made a pair, as well as beatknits! theirs all turned out so lovely.

okay. i think i'm ready to cast on.

There are sooo many sock options out there! Looks like you found a great one.

Ooooh Patons Kroy! I went to the Yarn Harlot book signing and she said that she uses Patons Kroy to make socks for her husband. I have never used it before, so it will be nice to see how they end up!

Those will be some nice socks!

I've never used Patons Kroy and am also interested to see how those come out! I LOVE that pattern too! Glad you found one!

I really need to get that book! And I think my new LYS carries that yarn - I'm going to have to check it out this weekend. Good luck w/ your socks.
