Bed Socks in Sweetgeorgia's Paris

Sunday, August 27, 2006

Here is the wool and the start of the sock. It was really hard to photograph and colour correct to show the colours accurately. Also, the difference of the colours between what a Mac person sees vs what is seen on a PC seems to vary greatly with these colours. I wanted to get it right because I am just in love with the colour combinations in this variegated yarn. Perfectly soft pink and lavender, with little bits of blues and fuchsia. I don't think the blues come out quite right in this photo.

I normally don't like a variegated yarn, or at least ones with very disparate colour combinations, but the stitch pattern used in this bed sock just wouldn't be as wonderful with a flat coloured yarn. It enhances the colours beautifully.
