Sock Yarn

Got out the dye pot and went crazy with sock yarn. My favorite is what I call the safe sock yarn, aka Heathers. It is very muted, very safe, not wild, but the colors are so subtle and soft, I love the way it looks. I don't know if I can resist knitting this myself. I must be getting old.

These yarns were designed to have a soft speckled appearance, not stripe or pool. This green looks a little funky,
it's hard to tell looking at the skein how it would look in a sock, so I knitted a small swatch to see how the speckles turned out and it looks great, softly blended flecks of color.

These yarns are available here.
