Finished Object Friday - Newton!

Click now for JiffNotes

I have finished the first socks in this year's Cookie A Sock Club!
 
Newton by Cookie A (my pattern page)


 
These socks were knit in the most squooshable (that is so a word!) sock yarn ever, MCN (merino, cashmere, nylon) from Indigo Dragonfly. I had to hold myself back from ordering more...after all, this is just the first club yarn shipment. And the second one arrived on Monday!
 
I should have made a size small instead of medium; they are a little loose and prone to fall down. But more than likely my odds-defying washing machine will render them a little smaller no matter how carefully I bag and hand-wash-cycle them. Whoever said that front-loading machines can't felt has not met my Tromm.
 
So this means I'm caught up, right? Let's ignore the fact that to enter the monthly drawing, I could have actually used this yarn to knit something different, then knit the TWO patterns we got with another sock yarn, for a total of FIVE entries (with the two batches of cookies I baked...oh yes, did I mention that along with the two sock patterns, we get two cookie recipes??) I used the club yarn, and knit some club socks. DONE!

Right?

Please, let's not talk about the fact that I won't get to wear these socks for another six months. Actually, YES, let's talk about that! HOORAY FOR SPRING!!!

Great socks! I hope they shrink exactly the right amount and then say perfectly fitted.
