Sockapaltwoza

Well, Here's the start of my Sockapaltwoza journey...
So, could it be you? My pal asked for Koigu, so I am headed over to an LYS that I do not like, because they are the only ones in my general area that carries Koigu. This will be fun for me as I have not yet tried Koigu (are you sick of me typing Koigu?...I think it is fun to type Koigu, Koigu, Koigu, Koigu.) Okay back to the pal requests...no lacy socks...what to do, what to do. I have thought about Nancy Bush's Travelers Socks from Knitting on the Road. But, this sock has a semi-lace top and cables down the sides...do you think it will be okay? Hmmmm. I will see if the obnoxious yarn store has any patterns for KOIGU, KOIGU socks... More on this later...maybe even pictures...how expensive is KOIGU? Geesh, I hope she likes them!

Comments:
I love Koigu! You'll have a lot of fun working with it. I've beem drooling over the Travelers Sock pattern in Knitting on the Road. Have you thought about the Conway pattern from the KOTR? A few weeks ago I started working on the pattern in Lorna's Laces and loved it. I ended up knitting a bit too tight and have had to rip it out, but the pattern was easy to remember and fun to knit. I"ll probably re-knit it in some Koigu. Something you should know about Koigu: It tends to expand a little after blocking/washing. Koigu runs for about 10.50-11.00/skein at my LYS.
