I blogged about this yarn from Ram Wools awhile ago. It was marked Super Soxx and was a horrible orange brown stripe. It felt awful to touch and cost me dearly (almost $25) because the books I ordered were out of stock and this was the sale surprise pack that I threw in to make it worthwhile.
I started these and thought I was going to gift them. But I actually started to like the colour. And when washed the first time...what a surprise...they were soft. So I have to eat crow and say...
I'M NOT UNHAPPY WITH THE SURPRISE PACK. But I still don't think they were worth $25.

BFF Di requested a quick couple of baby socks for another friend's shower. These are such a hit and I get to use up some leftover sock yarn. I usually do these on size 1's and 36 stitches. Bit of ribbing and turn the heel (flap style) and then 3 inches down the foot. Toe close and DONE! So simple that I don't even use a pattern.
Oh and these are finished objects from 2007, that's how far behind I am in my posts. When I upload a bunch of pics to flickr and webshots, I also add posts to my blog list (unedited)...hoping that it will inspire me to add them to my blog and ravelry.
