Sweet Sheep Sock club (say that 5 times fast)

Yesterday I got this. No, not the counter top (although it is spiffy). My yarn from the Sweet Sheep Sock Club came. I'm a mixed bag on this one. I like the yarn itself. It's soft and seems to be a little smaller than Socks That Rock Lightweight. I'm not crazy about the colors. I like the blues but I'm not crazy about the peaches. I'm going to wind a ball of it tonight and swatch with it. I'm not a swatcher, but after reading the blog comments from people (Yes, there are people who have already begun swatching) I'm thinking swatching is a must on this one. I'm also torn between what sock pattern to use. So many choices... I'm going to swatch in a couple of different stitch patterns and see how they look. This might be a perfect ripple pattern sock. Time will have to tell. I'll have the swatch for your viewing pleasures tomorrow night (hopefully).

I agree - I was not thrilled with the colorway either. And, I think it is going to do some serious pooling. I am not certain what I am going to do with the yarn either - I have not swatched it yet, but maybe I will have time Turkey weekend.

yes, this colorway is difficult to wrap your head around, isn't it?
