Love your Library - January edition

My first book/pattern choice did not work out.  I decided to move on to a different book.  I chose Think Outside The Sox.  I saw a display of some of the socks at Stitches South several years ago.  I had to have the book to find out how the leopard print socks were made.  The book is a compilation of winning designs from a Knitter's Magazine contest.  There are a lot of excellent patterns in the book and I may start another one before the year is out.

I decided to use the skein of Monet's Garden yarn.  This was best suited to a plain vanilla pattern.  I am unable to do a plain vanilla sock.  I have been known to fall asleep while knitting boring socks.  I chose Wandering Vines.  The vines would've shown up better with a plain solid color.  I am unable to knit a plain solid color unless there are other plain solid colors with it.  That's why I ended up with this.

Why do I want to head to New Orleans looking at those socks! They just say Mardi Gras with their color.
