I finished my September Mystery socks by Nancy Bush:

I made no modifications to the pattern.  They are knit up for a friend with small feet.  I really truly love the Malabrigo sock yarn.  It has a few great semi-solid colors, and knits up so nice and soft.  It is a very fine gauge yarn, and I think will work well for Fair Isle sock knitting.  I am really curious how this compares to the elusive Wollmeise sock yarn.  I would love to get my hands on some of that and try it out.  Alas, it is not available in this country.  The colors that I have seen people use online are amazing.  Lots of variety.

Here is my daughter wearing her sweater—finally.  The color is beautiful, one of my favorite.  The yarn is very soft (Sheffield by Valley Yarns from Webs), we will see if it pills and how it holds up over time.  I think that she was happy to have it finished.  Me too.
