Mystery Sock Yarn

I bought this mystery sock yarn of the month from The Sweet Shop. The yarn arrived last week; it was sKNITches Bebop Sock Yarn in the Koi Pond colorway. 100% superwash merino in fingering weight. It feels very soft for superwash yarn.

I like the colors but I'm not sure I'd call them Koi colors. It's more pink than an orangey-coral like most koi that I've ever seen. I especially like the bits of pale sage green in it; in my opinion, anything green is always a winner.

This yarn was bought in anticipation of Sock Madness. Starts March 10th. I hope my arm will keep-up with all the socks. As far as I understand the knit-off, there are 16 sock patterns the winner will have to finish.

I also finished another pair of the Cabled Fingerless Mittens in black Baby Alpaca Chunky by Cascade. I tried to take a photo but it was just a black blob; no details. So go back and look at the red, gray and green pairs I've made and imagine them in soft black alpaca. Shhhh, they're a gift.

I thought it was 7 sock patterns?
I guess we'll find out as we go.
