Same Sock Design, 2002 Version

Monday, May 4th, 2009

Thank you all for such great input. I am delighted that you like my “new” sock design. The one I knit originally as a Christmas present for a friend in December 2002… that sort of new!

Here is a photo of the first colorway I knit. The purple solid was Regia and the self-striping was Regia Ringel Clown. I love how that self-striping yarn aligned itself just perfectly with the motifs I chose.


Isn’t it amazing how using purple as the main color (albeit very different purples) and just varying the multicolored yarn it’s contrasted with, can make such a large difference in the overall look of the sock?

Funny.. this is the colorway I’d wear, personally, but I really see the appeal and depth of the new yarn combination. I have more combinations coming, as the pattern gets tested.

Stay tuned!
