I love that Justice's favorite color is orange, but it is hard to find a good machine washable and dry-able yarn in orange. So this is a bit of a compromise on my part, it's more of an orange/brown/yellow colorway. I am hoping she will like them anyways. I plan on dyeing up some yarn this Spring/Summer to make this easier in the future. I also bought a couple sock blanks through Knit Picks and I am hoping to fly Justice out to Buffalo this summer so she can hang out with me and her uncle (whom she thinks is just so nifty). I figure when she is out here she can dye up some yarn for me to knit her some sock . . . she'll be 9 then, that would be interesting to a 9 year old, right?
Anywho, onto these socks:
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Multi
Color: Sunset Multi
Content: 75% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon
Care: Machine wash and dry
Needles: US 0 / 2mm Circulars
I am trying a new heel called the Yo Yo Heel. It is an intersting variation of a short row heel. I will definitely be trying it again on a sock, with maybe some small variations. I did change it up a bit this time too, but we'll talk about that more when I actually finish the socks.
I am enjoying the socks as far as I have knit them, they, among other knitted items, are bus knitting and bus waiting project. :)
