Too pretty for my feet

I found this delicious purple and green yarn a couple weeks ago and it made me think of grapes, so I adapted Anne Hanson's Merlot Vine sock pattern. The yarn is Paca-Peds from the Alpaca Yarn Co. It's a superwash wool/alpaca blend. I wasn't sure it was going to be stretchy enough for socks, which was one reason I decided to try it as a mitt, but it surprised me. I went back for a second skein and as soon as I finish the second mitt, I'll do a pair of socks and then maybe a narrow matching scarf with the leftover yarn.

I'm starting to think of mitts as the fun part of socks!
