Chocolate Socks

Recent days have been distinctly lacking in blog worthy material, so I bring you something from last month. Behold the Chocolate Socks.

The yarn is chocolate brown and very yummy. (Can’t seem to photograph the brown in a way that brings that across, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. ) I made these following the Thuja pattern and was pleased by how quickly they knit up. I’m also pretty chuffed with myself for getting going on the Christmas knitting so early! These are a present for my father. When it comes time to wrap them I think I’ll make up a little package to continue the chocolate theme.

I always thought of these as “chocolate socks” and was reminded of them last night while we were eating Mayan Gold Green and Blacks chocolate. (Observe our will power – there is still some left!) This inspired my little photo arrangement of the socks, the chocolate and a background of a woven and embroidered cloth from my trip to Guatemala.
