I finished the first of a new pair of socks late last night.  I’ll be casting on for sock number two shortly.

It was this yarn that inspired me to knit this pair of socks:

I just love it.  It is Blue Ridge Fibers, Bambi (a merino wool and bamboo blend), in the colorway Red Maple.

I didn’t really have a pattern in mind, but I was desperate to knit up this yarn.  I just happened to come upon Cookie A’s Monkey sock pattern, (not only is it lovely, but it’s FREE) and decided to give it a go.

It really is working out nicely and the pattern is fun to knit.  I made a few modifications to ensure a good fit, and I’m zipping right along.

I like it when things work out…

~Happy knitting!
