Caribbean Queen

These are my "Caribbean Queen 40th Birthday Socks" ...

I wish today was more "tropical", but at least it is not snowing or raining!! The socks were enjoying the sunshine ...

Started on the flight to the Dominican Republic, the day before my 40th birthday, completed - today!

Specs:
Yarn: Kertzer On Your Toes Bamboo
Colour: ON260805 - Seashell Multi
Needles: 3.25mm (because I knit way, way too tight in the round!) For: ME!!!
Pattern: none ... just a 2 x 2 ribbed cuff, followed by a 4 x 2 rib, with a plain re enforced heel and my standard toe

Again?: Of course ... I LOVE the bamboo yarn ... soft and silky, a nice weight and they feel great on my feet! Lots of yarn left for another pair's heels and toes or a few random stripes. I will definitely make more socks from this yarn!

Very nice! I haven't wore my bamboo socks yet, so I don't know how they wear/wash/feel. Hope they hold up well cuz it's a nice yarn to work with, and it's silky soft. :)

I have been curious about that yarn. I will have to give it a try. Your socks look great.
