Also I want to start a pair of Bellatrix socks in honor of the passing of Gigi Silva, their designer. I have narrowed it down the the three above. I was initially partial to the bottom skein of Trekking XXL. Chiquita really though the middle skein of Cherry Tree Hill was best. But then I was thinking the top skein of Bear Mountain might be even better with the green for the killing curse. Help me pick a colorway!

Okay - I went and had a look at the Bellatrix socks and I have to say I still think the Trekking is the one I'd pick - but the Cherry Tree Hill runs a close second.

But I'm also imagining them in a grey/black/white kind of colorway. Would be interesting :)

Very nice squares. For the socks, I also like the Trekking.
