Dream In Color socks



This is my first pair of socks done in Dream In Color sock yarn. The colorway is called "Dusky Aurora" and it's GORGEOUS yarn! These socks were made using a size 2 needle (a 47" Addi lace needle) and the pattern is a simple eyelet rib twist something or other! I made up the pattern; it's just a YO, K2Ttog. But, about the yarn...it's wonderful! I can really understand why so many knitters rave about this yarn. The colour has enough variation to make it interesting, but it simply does not pool. I'm rather tired of having swirls and blobs of colour pooling on my socks, so this yarn is a real winner!!

I've got one more skein of this yarn in "Deep Seaflower" and I'll be stalking The Loopy Ewe this week for more!

I getting in the mood for some new sock yarn. This looks very, very nice. On the shawl front, I just bought Evelyn Clark's Angel shawl - have you knit this one yet? Or the Buffalo one (can't remember the name)?

That's a beautiful pattern that you created. And the yarn does cast some intriguing patterns as you knit it. Lovely yarn!
