Mm mm...Minty Chocolate Chip!

With our June gloom mornings it really hasn't gotten that hot here yet. But I think it's important to get my seasonal ice cream consumption started now, so by the time I need to really pack it away, I'm prepared. So after my healthy salad lunch I had this:

Followed by these:

Mint Chocolate Chip Socks!  

Using Duet yarn from A Swell Yarn Shop and the Waffle Rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks.  I was concerned about running short of the solid yarn  and having enough to finish so I only did 5 rounds of it on the cuff.  But I had plenty left so if I use this yarn again I'd definitely do more.  I'm especially pleased about the way the stitch pattern breaks up the colors, keeping it from being too "stripey".  They fit great and I'm satisfied.  Deelishus!

I *love!* the socks, they look so much like ice cream (and it helps that I like MInt chocolate chip)

The contrast heels and toes are cute!
