Finished Reversai socks

I finished my Reversai socks today. And even wove the ends in. The next round starts tonight, and although I am sad to be out of the competition, I am really glad to be able to knit these at my own pace and *enjoy* them. In a way that I wouldn’t be able to if I had the anxiety and adrenaline of competing.

The Round 3 socks are knit from two strands of laceweight yarn held together. I bought the recommended Tess Designer Yarn in black and yellow with the idea of making strong contrast bumblebee socks. The other great thing about the Tess yarn is that it is superwash, so I can throw it in the machine.

But… I have started the Laminaria for which I bought the Malabrigo Laceweight in shocking pink. And the idea about the shawl is that I will wear it for the embrace-the-pink party that I am planning on having for my 30th. So having a matching pair of socks (and hair, obviously) would be great. So I’m stuck. Do I make the bumblebee socks as originally planned, or do I make a pair of handwash only (eugh) socks?
