First, one yummy new sock:

I FINALLY got one of these finished. It is super cute though and worth the wait. I have the ribbing done on the second sock too, so I hope I don't end up with a bad case of Second Sock Syndrome. Thankfully I usually don't suffer from that.

Here's a close-up of the stitch pattern in case you wanted to see it:

I really do like the colors of this yarn. Happy, Happy, Happy!

And some yummy new yarn came home with me today.......

I went to Convergence today. It was fun. I saw Chris from Briar Rose Fibers. She is so nice! I bought some merino/tencel and some sock yarn from her. She does a beautiful job of dyeing yarn. I really like her colors. I also got a shawl pattern from her to use with the merino/tencel. Maybe I will take that project camping with me this weekend.

That's the tencel on the left and the sock yarn on the right. She just started dyeing some superwash sport-weight sock yarn and I really wanted to try it. I was just waiting until I could see the colorways in person. These two actually coordinate a lot better in real life than they seem to on this picture. So I will have some nice socks to match my beautiful shawl.

I will tell ya all a little more about it tomorrow. (I'm running short of time right now.)

Great socks! Was it from a book or pattern, or just a stitch pattern you decided to use? A 6 or 8 stitch cable separated by 2 purls?
