On To The Next One

blue sock monkeySockapalooza 4 Update
In an effort to avoid the dastardly and contagious Second Sock Syndrome, I've already cast on for Mona sock number two immediately after grafting the toe and weaving in the ends of numero uno, shown here:

Mona Socks
I was initially concerned about the marriage of the (even subtly) variegated yarn with this pattern but I have to admit that my fears were unfounded. Melissa's yarn is a joy to work with: no knots, nice twist and soft on the hands.

Now that I've got the hang of the pattern, sock number two should (hopefully) be a snap!

(Did I hear someone say, "Jinx?")

Pretty! The combination of flowing lines and lively green is quite nice.

I really love how this sock turned out. I'm going to be perusing Melissa's yarns for a colourway that might suit a pair of my own. This is the second time that you've led me to a wonderful etsy vendor. I'm not sure if I should thank you or curse you. ;-)

That is amazing! I saw that in the variegated, and immediately wanted that pattern. It wasn't until I followed the link that I realised it was the one and only Cookie A pattern that had made me say "Meh". In the variegated greens, it is just gorgeous! In the red on Cookie's site, it did nothing for me (and I love red).

Beautiful job on the sock.

Criss cross applesauce - double unjinx for your second sock! It is lovely, and I think that pattern is great with the colorway. Good job!
