Mystery Socks - Scherherazade's Slippers
Thanks for the link Pat, I have started these! And so far it is alot of fun. This is my first Mystery anything, as well as my first time working from a chart. I'm not sure I am doing everything right, but I like what I see so far. I had ordered a bunch of Elann.com Esprit for a sweater and when I did the swatch I did not like the effect the yarn gave. It is sort of like a small gauge boucle (which I have already proclaimed a dislike). So I sent it back, but I was left with the one skein from my swatch and decided to use that for this myster sock, as it is the only solid color sock weight yarn I have. It seems to be working quite well with this pattern and the texture is also quite forgiving of any errors I might have made..... :-) It is also really stretchy and therefore size forgiving. Just hoping one ball is enough, lol.
