Murder Mystery Socks

I've taken a break from knitting the second Celebrate Spring sock to begin this one while watching a Dorothy Sayers DVD.

I read murder mysteries year round, but I especially enjoy them during the fall and winter. Lying in bed late at night under quilts and comforters, with the rain lashing the windows outside and the wind howling around the corners of the house, reading a delicious who-done-it is one of my secret delights. It's just not the same when the weather is warm and the birds are singing.

This sock pattern is to remind me that the good mystery book reading weather is almost gone and won't be back again until October or November. The yarn is one of my favorites, wonderful to work with and has a beautiful shine. I have bought several skeins of this self-striping, 50% superwash merino 50% tencel yarn from Tricoterie on Etsy.

Today is a perfect day to start such a pair of socks. An Arctic cold front is bringing us colder weather as well as wind, thunderstorms, rain, and hail for the next few days.
