Socktoberfest Fail

I am a little disappointed I only got to knit one pair of socks for Socktoberfest.  I have 2 single socks without mates that I did not get to work on.  Oh well.

I wanted to try this super bulky yarn from Berroco called Link.  The scarf pattern on the label calls for a US 50 needle which I happen to have.  I used a US 19/15 mm needle instead of the US 35/19 mm needle called for in the online version of the pattern.  I would not buy a set of needles that size for a single project.  I am happy with the drape of the scarf knit on the size 19 needles.  I have another skein in grays, I am going to make a second one.  They take less than an hour to knit.
