>Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi

>daily for the last week or so:
Castlemaine Post Office person: Oh God no, here she comes again. It’s your turn – I’m taking my break now [ mass exodus ensues ]
Me: Is it here yet ?
receives answer in the negative
exits sadly

today:
and the cause of all the excitement?

the generous and wonderful and marvelous Irene at Jolly Jumbuck decided to do a little RAOK* with the last set of her Aussie Olympic hand dyed sock yarn and I got it!!!!
It’s on Handmaiden Casbah which seems to be just the most wonderful machine washable merino/cashmere blend and something I’m dying to knit with.
It’s just as well it took a few days to get here, because I’ve been in a quandary with what to cast on. Obviously it has to be something worthy of the beautiful yarn
… Hat? mmm maybe … but …
no
… jumper for grandson? It’s a wonderful bright colourway that would marvelous on a fair, blue eyed blonde and I love him to pieces but …
NOPE, not enough for him to get my cashmere
…fingerless gloves ? for once, no, I think not
… okay socks. It is sock yarn after all… but WHICH ? so many great patterns.

small rest while my brain cools down from the internet sock pattern overload

criteria:
– nothing too fancy. Lace socks look better in solids or very subtle variegations, which this self- evidently ain’t!!
I’m thinking about Broadripple or Wise Hilda’s Basic Ribbed Sock. Opinions? or other suggestions? but quickly please ‘cos I’m not sure how long I can wait to cast on :]

Don’t forget to leave a comment on the birthday giveaway post here – you have until the end of the month

    >oh very patriotic! and how kind – love the RAOK! I think you are right – a fairly basic pattern is best for such varigation – will it stripe? If it stripes I’d be tempted just to do plain stocking stich – or rib if st stitch bores you silly!

    >judging from the pic on her blog I’d say it IS going to stripe – the WiseHilda basic sock is a 3 x 1 rib

  3. >I have trouble choosing sock patterns and always seem to fallback on my old standby. You could use the WiseHilda basic sock for guidance but try my "standby" stitch pattern:Row 1 K3, P3Row 2 K1, P1Repeat rows 1&2 for the pattern. It makes a stretchy, beaded rib sock. Good luck! Lovely yarn, lucky you!

    >It’s definitely going to stripe!!! A bit of a sad first attempt at doing self-striping more than one skein at a time — I got myself into a right old mess.So sorry to make you wait so long Susan! Enjoy 🙂

    >I’ll vote for the “Wise Hilda” as they are very similar to what I think of as my basic “dad” sock – ribbed, unassuming, effective :)What a lovely thing to find in one’s mailbox!

  6. >Merino/Cashmere is more than worth getting a bit of a negative reputation at the post office. I see no problem with daily visits whatsoever. In fact, I’d probably camp out there. They aren’t really all that wild about me at my own post office either…

    >I nearly always knit plain stocking stitch socks with patterned yarns – I think it shows the pattern off best. And stocking stitch is so fast – just knt, knit, knit!
