Barcelona Socks

AKA November Mystery Socks...

Barcelona Socks

Pattern: Barcelona Socks (all 4 clue links are available on Ravelry) November Mystery Sock for SKA Sockdown designed by Mona Strickt.
Yarn: J. Knits Superwash Me Sock (used 3 oz of a 4 oz. skein) in Los Angeles Colorway
Size: Medium
Needles: 2 socks on 1 2.25 mm 40" circular needle

This is the 1st time I've used J. Knits sock yarn - it is soft and has wonderful subtle color variations. There is a little halo of fuzz - almost like it has alpaca in it (it doesn't). I'm sorry my pictures didn't turn out clear enough to see the beautiful color shading.
Barcelona has many great design elements - Mona knows how to make sock knitting fun - NOT boring! All the stitch patterns were new to me -even the cuff and heel - a beautiful piece of sock architecture!

and remember that little pile of yarn cakes?

Bosnian Mittens

I'll provide the all details next time (because I'm in a huge hurry this morning) ... Oh, I guess I could take a minute to at least find the link to these beautiful Bosnian Mittens.
