Judy's Pooling Challenge

Judy is having a pooling sock challenge.  I haven't knit socks in a couple yearswhile, but I am thinking about taking the challenge.  I knew right away that I wanted to try Lorna's Laces Solemate yarn because it's made with Outlast which is supposed to interact with your body's temperature so your feet don't get too cold or too warm.  The tough decision was choosing the colorway, but my "Box of Fun" arrived earlier this week.  I chose the "Cool" colorway which has light blue, medium blue and grey.


I still have to choose the pattern.  I'm currently thinking Brainless, Blue Suede Socks, Thamnophis, Waffle House.  I also like the Spiral Eyelet, but it's top-down and I prefer toe-up socks so I can knit until I run out of yarn.  I have a little time to think about it yet since I won't be casting on until next week at the earliest.

Beautiful yarn. I tried to make a colour pooling scarf last year and it just didn't work. Drove me nuts. Hope your socks go better.
