Fit for purpose

Remember the Beaudelaire socks I finished last month? The ones that I knitted from UK Alpaca's Alpaca Sock Yarn? Well, I wore them to work today.   It was freezing this morning and my office is never warm (no insulation in the walls).  And it snowed yesterday.

I have to report that they are a great success!  For the first time in what feels like forever I had warm feet all day and I didn't have to wear boots in order to wear warm socks. One of the reasons I bought the yarn was that it is dark enough to be inconspicuous under a suit; the other reason was the Alpaca warmth factor.  The yarn feels soft and silky, with no itch. 

If it wasn't for my "No stash enhancement" goal for 2010, I'd definitely purchase some more of this yarn.  As it is, it will be top of my present wish-list (gift yarns do not apply).  Roll on 2011 - I want some more!

Yay! Warm feet!!

Seriously, I can't STAND to have my feet cold. I can handle just about any other form of coldness, but when my feet get cold it's Game Over. Phooey.

And those are beautiful, too. Sweet combination. :)
