We unpacked enough things this weekend that I was able to cast on for a new project! It's my Sockapalooza socks, and I'll put up a picture of my first attempt tonight.
I'm using Regia Bamboo in a colorway that reminds me of what I think Santa Fe might look like, based on watercolors and tourist poster photos and not actual experience with Santa Fe. It's an interesting yarn. I like it a lot, although it seems softer and less elastic than other non-wool sock yarns. The variegation is also so strong that it made it hard to find a pattern I could knit that didn't get lost.
It's supposed to have antibacterial properties as well, and I have enough of this yarn to make another pair of socks, which I plan to do, for purposes of testing them in my Keens, which - while wonderful shoes - bring on the reek. (I have a very scientific experiment planned, which consists of wearing socks with sandals and smelling my own feet throughout the day. I should do it on the L; no one will notice.)
