Wasn't really feeling the club pattern that came with the STR Monsoon. Interesting looking and some cool ideas but I didn't think it would work well on my feet and, well, frankly, I'm not a huge fan of neverending ribbing on socks, no matter how nice it looks. Just takes too long and I like to be able to knit quickly on socks.
So, I went with Lava Flow from Sockbug. Threw on Lucy Neatby's garter stitch short row heel. I thought the slip-stitch pattern sort of blurred things up a bit, as if you were looking at a forest through windows coated in rain. Ok...too existential for socks, but you know what I mean...
Anyhow, started it last night and finished the first today. In all honesty, I probably wouldn't have picked this yarn out in a crowd but I actually really like it...very different than my usual color choices. Falls somewhere between camouflage and moss growing on rocks. Very organic.
