candy stripes

Last night I had some nervous energy... which I put to good use and finished my lifesaver candy sock yarn.. although it no longer looks like lifesaver candy..I should probably rename it.
380 yards of hand dyed handspun blue faced leicester... I think this is the best skein of yarn I have ever spun. The yarn actually has a nice sheen to it that is not showing up in the pictures and is very soft. Now... I need to find the perfect sock patten for this lovely yarn.. I have a few patterns in mind.. I could make another pair of 'Vog on... or maybe Jaywalkers.. or Broadripple.. any way I'm still looking at sock patterns today... and there so are many.. I'm welcome to suggestions.. (^_^)
