Too hot for wool

It's really hot here today, even at the beach! That's why I'm blogging instead of knitting. Although I have a few non-wooly projects that I could probably work on. . .Anyway, before the heat wave struck, I finished this sock. It's sock #1 of a pair of Trystero socks, pattern by the ingenious Cookie A, yarn by Madelinetosh.

Not much to say about this project. I followed the pattern and all was well. Lots of fun cabling, but I didn't have to concentrate too hard to follow the charts. The sock fits great and the yarn, which is 100% superwash merino, is really squishy. I reinforced the heels and toes like I usually do when I'm knitting with 100% wool sock yarn. Now, on to Sock #2. When it cools down, that is.
