The socks on the right is the first one I knit and you can see the pooling at that occurred as I started it. As it progressed the pattern became a stripy one and the continued on the second sock too.
Here's a close up of how the colors played out - plum, forest green, chocolate brown, turquoise
And the mailman dropped off some new squishy goodies yesterday - perfect timing. I cast this pair on last night. This is Blue Moon Fibers Socks that Rock in the Supercolourfragilistic colorway. You can check it out along with lots of other great colorways here.
This is what the skein looked like when it arrived. Such gorgeous colors - burnt' orange, peach yellow, a touch of lime, burgundy, teal and a flash of turquoise.
I opened up the skein to see how this was dyed. Big Dude was happy to assist in the inspection and found it suitable.
I'm glad I remembered to take pictures of the skein in this state so when I go to do some yarn dyeing this spring I'll be able to see the arrangement of colors and I'll know how it knit up.
I'm sticking with the 60 stitch plain vanilla stockinette socks. I think most patterns done with this yarn would just get lost. This yarn is a joy to knit with. It is nice and round and has a wonderful sheen. I've got several pairs of socks that use Blue Moon Fibers. This yarn doesn't have any nylon in it and I normally steer clear of yarns without a bit of nylon for socks but I made an exception for this yarn because it is just soooo pretty and I adore the names they give to there colorways.
I apologize for not responding to all the lovely commments you've left this week. I will catch up this weekend.
