Cookie A's Sock Innovation, #5 - Angee is very easy one to follow.
The colorway is called "Dune Twist" from Knit Picks, which was part of a sampler pack I had purchased a while back.
Even though it's an easy pattern, you shouldn't forget to keep track of your rows and use your lifelines. The variegation in the yarn is just enough for you to get lost if you're not paying attention.
The yarn was a nylon/wool mix that would often split, resulting in ripping back some rows or picking up dropped stitches. The nylon in the yarn will make it a long wearing sock. I had this yarn in my stash for quite some time and it knitted up nicely, giving the sock a nice mix of color without hiding the pattern.
