Berry Crush Socks

I recently saw a picture on Instagram of Annettle's Graquellow Socks and loved the texture. I was so inspired I grabbed some yarn I had recently dyed and casted on.

My version is garter stitch between slipped stitches and love how it is turning out. This color is one I recently dyed as a variegated and I love it, but it is difficult to photograph.

It's between the picture above and the picture below.

Love the texture.

The last socks I knit myself were in 2013, before that 2011, so I think I am due a pair of hand knit socks! :)

Are we noticing a recent pink and purple theme? Yeah, I don't know where it is coming from either, but I am very oddly enjoying it, so we will just go with the flow.

  1. I really like that stitch pattern. (And the pink and purple theme...) Yes, it does sound like you're due for a new pair of handknit socks!
