Two different socks in progress. The one on the left is from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. It's the "Child's First Sock" pattern, which has a nice shell-like repeat. The yarn is from Sundara Yarns' Petals collection. The color is called Lenten Rose, and it has some nice color variations since it's hand-dyed. It's a really cushy yarn.
The sock on the right is going to be a Spindle Sock (pattern by Amelia Raitte of My Fashionable Life), and the yarn is Toasty Toes, from Interlacements. I already used this yarn to make a pair of socks that turned out a little too big, which I frogged after wearing once. So the yarn's a little bit tired. But hopefully it will still make a good pair of socks. And, yes, it is the same yarn that I made a scarf out of a while ago. The yardage on Toasty Toes is sick, dude.
By the way, today was a beautiful day here in SF, 68 degrees, sunny and breezy. And the waves looked really pretty, too. Yet here I am, posting pics of yarn balls.
