The pre-KAL note call for using a solid or semi-solid colorway and I'd been wanting to try out the Knit Picks Gloss that I picked up a little while ago. Since it appeared to fit the bill better than most of the colorways in my stash, the decision was easy.
So where this sock is going is still any one's guess, but I'm enjoying it so far. I like the simple chain-like pattern along the leg. Match it with the colorway and I've got a very classy looking sock so far with a touch of elegant detail. If you're not participating in the group, you should check out the others on Ravelry and see the progress being made in various yarns and colorways. It's amazing how the same pattern can give quite a different look with a different yarn. It's kind of like a decide your own mystery book.
eta: Can anyone tell me what I did wrong here? I deleted the photo of the yarn from my hard drive but it was on my Flickr account so I attempted to use that photo and used the same method of posting a photo as you do in a forum post on Ravelry. The photo was there in my draft posting, but now that it's published, it's just a code link. What did I do wrong?
