New Socks!

Since I finished my cardigan and socks last week, I got to start new projects for 2016 over the weekend!  Naturally, I cast on some new socks.  These are Honey Badgers, but I'm only working the leg chart after the ribbing, not the hole-y-er cuff chart (I promise this makes much more sense if you are looking at the pattern - it's free).

I'm using Madelinetosh Twist Light in Cosmic Wonder Dust.  This is a new base for me and I'm really liking it.  I like Madelinetosh Tosh Sock, but I'm not crazy about it for socks.  I've never had a problem with it wearing through in the socks I've made with it, but it just doesn't feel as tightly twisted as it maybe could be for socks.  I love it for shawls and scarves and sweaters though.  The Twist Light is more tightly twisted, has more plys, and has some nylon in it for strength.  I'll have to see how it wears, but at least as far as knitting, it's very nice.  I got this skein from Eat Sleep Knit and something tells me, I'll be back for more of it!

Obviously, I've already knit the first sock and have started on the second.  I don't think this pair of socks is going to take too long to get finished!
