Red hot socks

As promised, there’s a new sock on the block

You’d think I’d be tired of red after the man socks, but apparently not. You can’t really tell from the picture, but it’s a lovely marl of two shades of red. Colourway is Lava. It’s supposed to have a subtle ombre shift, but so far I’m not seeing it. Maybe I just haven’t gotten that far yet. What the yarn is, is super soft. Very nice to knit with – especially for the price. It was under $20 for the skein.

There’s no pattern to this, I’m just putting a panel of feather and fan down the front, to one side. If it works out the way I want in my head, I’ll write up the pattern and share.

And for all those wondering about the state of the stinky sweater… I’m still working away at it in the background. My goal is to have the knitting finished by the end of September, so I plan to have some sort fo an update for you soon. Stay tuned!

    Love the color and the panel of feather and fan. The color is just beautiful on my screen and I see a slight shift in color among the stitches.
