I finished knitting the alpaca socks last night, and felted them this morning. Tom is wearing them now, and has pronounced them "comfortably soft and warm."

I found the pink thick-and-thin I bought last year at Village Spin and Weave in Solvang. I bought it with the intention of doing a proper Aran cable knit sweater, but now I'm having doubts. The yarn is quite bulky. Add in cables, and I'd have another polar-weight sweater. I don't think I need either the warmth or the bulk that cables would add. In the meantime, I knit a band of seed stitch for the lower edge, while I decide what to do with the rest.
