Newest socks

This is the latest pair of socks I finished. I started them to use as my class demo recently. Online Supersocke 100 yarn from the Tropic collection. (I believe color #928, though it doesn't look exactly like the one on their poster, and I misplaced the ballband) I got this yarn at Knitter's Mercantile in Columbus when Kim and I went down for TNNA this summer.

I have another pair on the needles that will hopefully be done soon. I am really itching to start my next pair, which will be from Cat Bordhi's new book New Pathways for Sock Knitters. I want to make the pair that is on the right on the cover of the book...the one with the braid-y looking cables going up. Unfortunately this means buying sock yarn since I don't have an "almost solid" in my stash. I think I will use Ranco sock yarn from Araucania (since it's on sale at Labor of Love right now). There are some really pretty colors. I'm deciding between the last 3 on the color chart. I think I've eliminated the pink though, so it's the teal or the blue.

Oh, I love your socks. Very pretty pattern and colors. They look like they would be very warm too.
