Socks for my manager, Amy:
Yarn: Storm Moon Knits Twilight Sock in 'Rockabilly Blues'
Needles: 2 - 16" Knitpicks Size 2 circulars
Pattern: Ann Budd's Basic Sock
Size: Ladies' Medium
Aren't they eye-catching? I bought this yarn at Stitches East a few years ago, and what caught my eye from the beginning was the contrast with the pale turquoise and the black/purple/dark green. Unfortunately, it looks like the dyer has taken an indefinite leave from her shop - it's really too bad because I love how vibrant her colourways are. I had to be sneaky about getting Amy's shoe size out of her - it's not something that comes up in every day conversation! We were talking once and she said her daughter was borrowing her socks (I think her daughter is 11), and I expressed surprise that they would wear the same size... and bingo! Had to store that in my head for a while. I'm really pleased at how they turned out, and Amy loves them.
