Socks again 

At Yarn Con recently I purchased this yarn from Lorna’s Laces:

Lorna’s Laces has traditionally been a solid go-to yarn.  It is soft and squishy, and wears well.  In past years, I have purchased yarns that were seconds at their loft studio.  The colors in this yarn really spoke to me.  When I knit it up, the colors pooled, but did not muddy out.

I do wish that the repeats were a bit shorter to have the colors more like ended up on the heel portion.

In spite of the pooling, the socks came out really well and were so soft and wonderful to the touch.  These were gifted to my DIL for her birthday.  She loved the yarn when I brought it home from YarnCon.  Hopefully she likes the socks equally well.

And, she had asked for some fingerless mitts, so these were knit with some variegated Koigu, and remnant sock yarn.
