I was playing with the hubby's light box with this one and I was trying to find the best place to shine the light to get the best results. I love the shadows of the bottom picture. It really shows off the pattern to the best advantage.
This sock is merino/silk. I hand dyed the yarn and the pattern does not show up with a painted yarn. I tried it out and nope, it will not work.
I have had several requests from family members for this sock to be knit for them. I will be knitting this one for forever. It turned out really well. I haven't written down the pattern, yet.
This is one sexy sock. I even told my niece, she will have a pair of originals, hers were the first pair off of this pattern. She has the test socks. I plan on dyeing more yarn in solids for this pattern.
