My friend alala in Germany sent me a skein of Wollmeise a while ago, and because it was so special, I didn't knit anything with it for the longest time. Finally I decided it was time and chose a simple pattern, the Tidepool socks, so as not to compete with the colors, which I love. I started these on September 20, but I decided they qualify, since the equinox was only a couple of days later. :) I finished them last night. I've been sewing a lot in between! The coolest part is I still have a smidge more than half a skein left, so I can make another pair of simple socks with this yarn.
