Yarn: Pigeonroof Studios in dovecote
Needles: US # 1 DPN
I had intended to use the Charade pattern for these, but the colorway obscured the stitches. I think Charade shows best with less variegation. I was traveling in a car when I decided to rip back and continue in stockinette. I am glad I did, these make me very happy. The colors are a bit more muted on one sock, simply a small difference in the dying process. I like this since it reminds me of the beauty in hand made versus machine perfected. My affection for Pigeonroof yarns is well known, and now Krista has a new sock base that she thinks is even better than the original. More squishy? More springy? How could that be? I am shaking my piggy jar as I type.
