Pattern: Mockery Socks
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock, 1 skein, in Ochre
Needles: US 1
This was one of the pattern knitalongs for the Malabrigo March group on Ravelry. I didn't finish my socks until April 5th - it took me exactly one month to finish. I really enjoyed this pattern. The cables are very subtle due to the fact that they are created using yarnovers and k2tog - a cable needles is never used (yay!). The socks are worked over 70 stitches instead of the 64 I'm used to. As you can see in the photo, they're a bit baggy around the ankles, so I think I'll try to stick to a 64 stitch sock in the future.
This was my first time working with Malabrigo Sock, and I know I'll be using it again. It's a little thinner than other sock yarns (it would work great for a shawl), but it's also very soft. And, of course the colors are beautiful.
