I have picked out yarn for my next sock project which is Minty's delightful Anastasia Socks. This is Mocha Rose by Brooklyn Handspun. I think the soft variegation from beige to pink will work well with the pattern.
While I was pregnant, it was hard to imagine this little baby and I had trouble picking out things for her. Obviously with a girl, you can always go for pink, but I was anti everything pink. I didn't want rosebuds and applique. Bright and primary seemed more our speed. Funny how from the day she was born, I have covered her head to toe in pink. Yes, including the pacifier. And everyday her Daddy and I coo at her with baby talk and make absolute idiots out of ourselves. We are loving every minute of it! Our little "WOOPS!" has become a big "WOO HOO!"
So in honor of Anastasia, I will knit these socks out of pink yarn. I actually already made her a little pair of socks from my Brooklyn Handspun. I figure that I will still have enough yardage to complete a pair for myself and a new, matching pair for her. I know only knitters will get the whole "socks in honor of" thing, and trust me, I am still plugging away at Curlicue and have more sweaters and such to come!
