Well the actual honey badger can't (this nugget of useless information brought to you by Wikipedia),but my Honey Badger socks can perch in a tree with assistance. This is a free pattern on Ravelry.com.
The yarn is a honey colored Lorna's Laces called Butterscotch. I love the color and the feel of this yarn. The pattern has a lacy look and when you put them on...
it takes on a cabled appearance. (Side note: It is hard taking pictures of your own feet. particularly when you don't want to reveal that you should have shaved your legs.)
Knitting these socks spurred a couple of nights cruising Ravelry where I downloaded a bunch of new sock patterns. After studying the sock patterns I realized that most of them looked best is solid or semi-solid yarns. So that necessitated some online shopping, and these darlings arrived on Monday.
The ones on the left are Cascade Heritage. I got 3 of them wound into cakes last night. The two skeins on the right are more Lorna's Laces and the ball in the middle was a pain in the rear. This is a skein of The Sanguine Gryphon Bugga yarn in the Oleander Nymph colorway. It has 20% cashmere and it the most expensive skein of yarn I have ever bought. I seen lots of reviews of people raving about this yarn and I expect it to knit up beautifully but getting it from its skein configuration to a cake or in this case a ball took over an hour. As soon as I put it on my swift I could see it was going to be a problem. I ended up winding it by hand from the swift and I has 2/3 of it wound before it would come off the swift without major maneuvering. I was too tired after fighting this one to wind the rest of them - a project for another evening.
Now I just have to decide what pattern and what yarn to knit up next. A decision I much prefer to the daily "what are we having for dinner?" decision.
Hope you are having a good day - mine just got better because I've decided we are going out for dinner.
