Something Yellow

I did make it through Round 4, though only by the skin of my teeth. I was the last of the 24 who will continue on to Round 5 (though of course everyone is encouraged to knit all the patterns).

Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks in mellow yellow (discontinued color)
Needle: US 1 / 2.25 mm
Pattern: Something's Shady (Round 4 Sock Madness)

I really enjoyed the leaf pattern, and the toe, in particular, was quite elegant. I was definitely hampered by the cable pattern on the back of the leg though. (Sorry I have no photos of mine, but you can see a great one of the stitch pattern here.)

I am not sure about how I want to dye these, and I think I will mull it over for a few days. I am not sure if I would rather go with red and orange for fall or shades of green for spring. As I am not crazy about the yellow though, I think I will probably over-dye all of it with graduations of the over-dyed colors.

I think Salvbard isn't quite sure if he should be pleased or disappointed that I completed this round. I am not going to stress about making the next round though. Although I didn't expect to say it, honestly, I am sick of socks for the moment. All I can think of is knitting are baby garments. I have been fantasizing about Baby Surprise Jackets and other adorable baby knits... Hmm I have a few days until round 5, maybe I will go cast something on.
