apple peaches pumpkin pie


originally this lovely skein of dragonfly fibers djinni sock was set aside to become a shawl. but the beauty of the yarn was being lost somewhere in the knit/purl sequence. so this chickadee did what any self respecting knitter would do and ripped out rows upon rows of stitching that represented hours and hours of work. and then went on the pattern offensive to find something that would showcase this spectacular yarn.

the charade sock pattern by sandra park was just the thing! the simple stitch pattern was perfect for the yarn and for the newish sock knitter. there was just enough going on to make it interesting but not so much that it was overwhelming...and that combination let the beautiful bouquet of reds and oranges shine.

chalk up another sock! a hand-dyed, hand-knit hug for the feet.
