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.
