Nice! I can't wait to see how it works up. You will post pictures, right?
I've been working on the sock of the month from TheKnitter and it's is a vagriated green, though more olive than this. It's Fixation, so I love working with the yarn but I'm cold to the color. More army green than the intended leaf green. Nothing bright enough to suggest leaves. Anyway, my roommate saw how stretchy the socks were and she wants them. Hand knit socks always find a home.
What attracts you to socks? It seems knitters have a love/hate relationship with them with the most common, and eminantly logical, statment from the against camp being "no one will see them". What's the alure for you?
That really is a nice color.
