This picture is a bit closer for colour accuracy but the red is a bit darker than this
Just because I like playing with the macro function on my camera
I enjoyed knitting the socks, I wasn't sure about the sampler style of them but actually it really does work and I like them a lot. When I actually focussed the knit was quick and the pattern easy to memorise. The yarn is lovely too and I think when I've worked through a bit more of my stash I may join the Ripplescrafts sock yarn club again as the service was excellent, the colours are really rich and the dye doesn't run when you wash them as it has in other handdyed yarn I've used. This reminds me I must pick up some white vinegar and attempt to set the dye a bit better on my lime green socks which many washes later continue to make the water look like the cheap and shockingly sugary limeade I drank as a child.
Also the blasted cardigan of doom was finished last night, I took a quick, late night, no natural light photo as proof but I think this cardigan deserves a blog entry of it's own with some better pictures of me modelling it.
