International Sock Swap
I hadn't been involved in any swaps in so long. I find that there are very few swaps on ravelry.com these days. Luckily, the International Sock Swap is alive and kicking. I chose "Dither" by General Hogbuffer. I wanted to try my luck at stranded knitting and just loved the color graduation the pattern offered. It took me a while to find the right combination of colors. I settled on Heritage Solids by Cascade Yarns in purple hyacinth, turquoise, and citron. The results were fantastic. I received several compliments on them while they were on the needles and the swap recipient loved them as well.
I plan on doing this pattern again, but I think I'll try a more subtler color combo.
