The photo below - excuse the fuzziness - are the slipper-y slouch socks for my aunty for Christmas. To fit a size 6 foot on 2.5mm needles took exactly 100g of Artesano Alpaca (in Teal). I washed and blocked them and they are just the softest, most luxurious socks I've ever had my mitts on. ;) I really must knit myself a pair, they are gorgeous. And they feel so heavy too, which is really weird.
I've just cast on to make myself *yet another* pair of socks - I'm addicted! I'm using Colinette Jitterbug sock yarn which I got in a swap with Christina (aka Belaybunny). The colour is Velvet Olive and is a beautiful rich deep green. I'll hopefully post a WIP picture tomorrow. I'm only on the rib at the moment but I'm still not sure whether to go for plain stocking stitch or a woven k2 p2 pattern. The yarn is really soft and lovely to knit with. I'm definitely going to have to get some more of this!
