I am onto the third pair of socks from Alice Yu’s book Socktopus.
This pair is called V – Junkies.
A very easy knit with a nice slipstitch design feature.
I am almost finished with the first sock and find that this is knitting up very fast.
These are made out of Cascade Heritage Hand Painted Sock Yarn.
It’s a merino and nylon blend that is machine washable.
I thought the colors were grayer when I picked the yarn,
purchased the yarn and again when I picked it out of my stash for this design.
But this weekend I had a very pleasant surprise.
I took the yarn outside to knit and all these colors appeared! Like magic!
The grays have a drab olive tone; there are browns, blue and lavender that I never noticed before.
All in all this was a very pleasant surprise.
Note to self – always check colors in natural light whenever possible
