A couple of weekends ago, BDE and I met for lunch and a trip to an LYS I hadn't been to before. I was looking for sock yarn for a KAL that's starting soon. And I found some beautiful Malabrigo in a green called Lettuce. I can't stop petting it.
BDE, who is afraid of wool, actually had a good time walking around picking yarn up and looking at it. She really liked some of the sock yarn, so being a good mother, I offered to make her a pair of socks. What she really wanted was another pair of pedicure socks instead so we checked out all the yarn. She decided that the Regia Silk Color was really soft and not itchy at all. And I totally lied and told her that was because it's silk. You see, she's not allergic to wool, she just thinks it's itchy and if she doesn't know it's wool then it won't be itchy. So don't tell her.
Pedicure socks are quick and fun and don't take much yarn at all. I don't use a pattern I just start late and end early on my plain vanilla sock pattern.
