19. Brains?

I usually don't knit socks, but the ones I have (mainly the Firestarters I finished on Halloween) I love. I was browsing Ravelry last night and found out that Yarnissima had put out a new pattern, on the 17th. It's pretty much the same as my firestarters, but with a much simpler cable running up the sides. I'm using Beyond Basic Knits superwash sock (70% merino, 30% nylon) in the Squirt colorway. So Freaking Bright. White, neon green, and a deep purple. I love it. I do usually like a firmer sock yarn like Socks that Rock, or Cherry Tree Hill, but I think that this yarn will work up well. It's really soft, I'm just wondering how well it will hold up in shoes and boots.

-Cheers and keep those feet warm and happy.
