New sock

Loved working with this yarn

Malabrigo Sock is more like silk or a silk blend than a regular sock yarn.

It is 100% wool, nicely twisted and the subtle colour variations are quite pleasing.

It has been a while since I have done a sock with a cuff - something I love to do - knit the cuff sideways and then pick up and knit the stitches and continue on down the ankle.

This one meanders back and forth and brought a stream to mind - thus "River"



Colour is Lettuce.

And a Photoshopped version that is very close to Impressionist Sky:




I started out with quite a different pattern and even changed colours but the pattern I was using just wasn't showing up and although I liked it a lot and will use it for a later sock, it just wasn't working in this yarn - too fine and just enough colour variation that it blurred the pattern.

If at first...

Another beautiful sock! Can't wait till my shipment comes. The Malabrigo is my new fav sock yarn (along with Jitterbug).
