Italy and Wales Hybrid

What happens when you mix Tuscany yarn with Nancy Bush's Conwy pattern?

Nice, huh?
Pattern: Conwy by Nancy Bush in Knitting on the Road
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Tuscany (though when I think of Tuscany it's more orange and green)
Needles: Size 1 and 2 DPNS
The pattern only called for size 1 needles, but my feet are kind of on the wide side so I discovered after finishing the first one that I could use more room. For the second sock, I switched to size 2 at the foot. Perfect. Yes, I did go back to the first, ripped out the foot, and redid it.
Thoughts: Great pattern. Like I said before, I love the yarn and the color, but not the pooling. I would use Lorna's Laces again, but only in a solid color.

Jen,
Your socks are awesome! I agree with the solid color choice for next time. I like to have control over my color work and pooling drives me crazy.

I love them. I agree about the color bit tho, I think orange and green as well.
I agree, mostly, if you're doing a plain pattern, sometimes the color changes are the only thing that keeps me awake, but if there's a nice pattern, I like mostly solids for sure!
