yarn and socks

Here is the Regia Bamboo that I've been playing with. I finally decided that it does not want to be a sock with stitch patterning. It just wants to be a plain vanilla stockinette sock.

This pattern is from The Little Box of Socks. I really wanted the Regia Bamboo to become this pattern but the Faceted Rib Socks will have to wait for different sock yarn to maximize its potential. It's such a great pattern! Most of the patterns from this little box are really nice and quite easy. I know that I'll be referring to it for a long time.

These two skeins of sock yarn came in yesterday's mail from The Loopy Ewe. The top one is Dream In Color Smooshy in the Some Summer Sky colorway. Great yarn but the bottom one took my breath away when I opened the parcel! It's Beyond Basic Knits in the Rhythm & Blues colorway. This is definitely my taste in colors! So pretty! It might become the Faceted Rib Socks or I might use a multi-colored STR for it.

Those are nice. I admit I am in love with DIC yarn, especially smooshy. I can't wait to see the faceted socks.

I like the feel of the Regia Bamboo but I haven't knit with it yet. Dream in color is one of my favorite sock yarns. The Beyond Basic Knits is gorgeous! Don't you just love the Little Box of Socks.

How are you liking your sock knit with Regia Bamboo? I'm knitting one now and while it is very soft, it doesnt have the body that my wool socks have. Do you think its the nature of the sock?
