I did the May Day socks by Anni. I crocheted a sweater and had lots of crochet yarn left over. So I used the Hilaza Rustica Omega yarn to knit my socks. The yarn has a shiny irridescant fiber mixed with the yellow that gives it a shimmer that wasn't captured well in the photo. It isn't very soft so I don't know how much I will be able to wear them! Last year I had 2 knees replaced; this year I have to have vertebrae fused. I was loopy from pain medicine last year and couldn't focus enough to knit complicated designs. I hope I will be able to fill my down time with knitting somehow. It sure helps the time pass faster!
