In Which the Pirate Shows Yarn.
This is the yarn I said I wouldn’t buy, and although it’s not been sunny enough to get a good picture, I took one anyway. In real life the colors are much deeper. I could probably spend the next hour futzing with the camera and not get an accurate shot, so I don’t think I’ll bother – can you forgive me?
Anyway, I don’t have a pattern in mind. It may come out as some mottled variegation or it may stripe/spiral a bit; I’ve seen both in socks knit up from this yarn. I may just go with a simple textured stitch on the leg and stockinette on the foot, and see what happens. Something with a single cable down the side might look nice too!
