Jeck in a Sox

Pattern:  Jeck, a freebie on Ravelry, by Regina Satta,
Needles: size one brand new ChiaoGoo,  32 inch, magic loop.  They are nice pointy needles.
Yarn:  one of kind colorway Tosh Sock, 100% superwash merino.  The colors were quite surprising and I really loved knitting them.  The picture does not do it justice.  There are bits of pink, baby blue, mauve and white.  Tosh merino is a very nice yarn to work with. 
According to the designer, a jeck is a crazy person so the crazy colorway was perfect.  The pattern was well written and easy to follow.  I had a little problem with the toes as I missed a couple decreases, but all was good in the end. 

So what next?  I wish I had some red sock yarn to do the Katniss Socks by Rose Hiver.  It's another Ravelry freebie with cool pattern and cables.  I'll have to check out the stash.

Those are cute. I am in a mood to knit socks, but bored with my light grey Monkeys on the needles. I might just go rogue and cast on another pair in a wilder color. Jeck looks like a contender...

Thank you for sharing the links to the patterns. I have a weakness for free sock patterns.
