Summer Sock Party Woes

You might remember that I was designing my first ever pattern for my Summer Sock Party Pal. It was not meant to be. Things were moving along so fabulously until Sunday night. I was closing in on the toe when I decided it looked totally wrong and couldn't possibly do. I frogged the whole thing. It just looked ---- WRONG. I'm not abandoning the whole design-my-own-sock-pattern thing but this particular pattern would be better suited to a solid color. So, I've put it aside for now and began knitting my pal another sock -- same yarn, different pattern. It's the Dublin Bay pattern and it looks fabulous. I hope to be finished by this weekend.

Beautimous! I have been thinking about knitting that pattern. It looks really good with the striping yarn :)

New pattern looks fabulous, though! What is that yarn? I really like the color.

Thank you. It's Fortissima Socka - Cotton Color. This is the first time I've used this yarn and it is nice to work with.
