International Sock Swap

I hadn't been involved in any swaps in so long.  I find that there are very few swaps on 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.
