Yarn Weight: Sock
Needles: US size 2 (2.75 mm) circulars

Pattern Location: Ravelry’s Pomme de pin socks

This was the seventh 2012 Christmas present, code name “Eagle.”  I bought this yarn back in August at the Midwest Stitches convention for my mom, code name Black Mamba.  I knew back then that I’d make her a pair of socks for Christmas.  I didn’t want plain stockinette socks because I’m teaching her how to make those on her own.

The pattern needs a solid color to pull it off completely.  This tonal yarn hid a lot of it especially on the leg portion.  I ended up skipping one of the repeats because it was hard to see the pattern anyway and I was happy with the length it was.

I have enough yarn left over that I’m going to make a basic pair of socks for myself.  I like the feel and color of this yarn.  I’m running out of room to store all my yarn so I want to use up any partial skeins instead of adding it to my stash!

      What’s wrong with Black Mamba? It’s the fastest snake in the world =)

    Black Mamba is one of the most dangerous snakes. I want to be a nice snake.
