Sock Summit Socks

My friend, Karin, is going to be a vendor of her hand dyed yarns at
"The Sock Summit" (
in Portland, Oregon in August. She needed some socks to display her finished product so these are the socks I knitted for her to take to the booth.
This is the true color of the yarn.
The colorway is called Lemon/Lime and the yarn is a merino and nylon blend.
This yarn is great to knit and I like the way it shows off the lace pattern of the sock. The pattern is called "Child's First Sock in Shell Pattern" from the Nancy Bush book, "Knitting Vintage Socks".

Have fun in Oregon socks!

I finished mine the other night. I love the yarn and I enjoyed the pattern - I made embossed leaves by Mona Schmidt in 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave.

OMG Jody they look fantastic!!! Thank you so much. It really is amazing to me to see my yarn in I can't believe I dyed that.

I want a full report on how the yarn behaved and if the color bled at all, anything you want to tell me.

Beautiful! And I love my Karin yarn--I have a shawl out of it, just need to purl the last row and cast off today. Very nice yarn to work with.
