A few weeks ago I whinged about how annoyed I was at myself for not being able to match the dye lot for a pair of socks that I’ve been working on since March. Well, I bit the bullet and finished them up a little while ago.
There is very definitely a line where the dye lot changes, but I don’t think it is too awful. If it is, please don’t tell me! I’d prefer to live in ignorance. 😉
The pattern is Diamond Shreddies by Carrie Van Kessel, and it is available for sale through Ravelry. The yarn is two different dye lots of Berroco Comfort Sock in colourway 1713 Dusk. The pattern is very clearly written, and the resulting sock is just lovely. The cables look very complicated, but are easy to knit if you take your time, and the ribbing that flows down the sock makes for a great fit.
I’ve got two other pairs of socks on the needles right now, plus a super cute pair of tiny socks that are part of a class from the Creativ Festival. Hopefully I will have more socky finishes to share shortly.
2015 SAL – I’ll be announcing the plans for the 2015 SAL by Friday. Stay tuned!
