I was particularly happy with this yarn when it finished this morning and wanted to let you all see a picture. This is a 100% merino yarn that I dyed with this intention of making socks for all of the men in my life (that would be four of them, one large version, two teenagers, and a wee baby who loves handknit socks). It is so pretty and subtle that I’m thinking about hijacking it though. Even if I use it for its intended purpose, I still have a good bit extra, but it is going to be a temptation to use it all for something really beautiful for myself.
It was hard to take a photo that captured the full color range on this one — it goes all the way from silvery grays, through a golden brown and on into a deepr burnt umber brown, before going to a true black. I left several areas of white — in much smaller bands — which will give this yarn a lovely faux fair isle look when knit. You get more of an idea of the colors looking at the untwisted skein.
