The yarn is called Katia Darling and there are more details on my Ravelry project page.
This next pair uses Crazy Zauberball.
There is a very long colour repeat on this yarn - and as you have probably noticed, I don't care much for perfectly matching socks! More details here.
I then finished off these lovely stripey socks that remind me of the seaside - gorgeous beachy colours:
I used Knit Picks Felici yarn for these socks, The yarn is fabulously soft and a dream to knit with. The yarn was discontinued, but they have 6 colourways in stock, so runveryquick and get some . . . like I did! I also have a few other colour combos that will surface in the future!
I had some other fun with colours this weekend, and got the results back from having my 'colours' done. This was all the range in the '80's, but I never had them done. Fast forward a few years, and Mr. SDSC kindly booked me a session for my birthday. Here are my colours, based upon my eye, skin and hair colouring:
I know that it looks like pretty much every colour you could think of, but if you looks carefully, there is no black or white, only one purple and one yellow, no fushia or pink (the pink above is actually more peachy). And lots of green. I rarely wear green, so will now start introducing it into my wardrobe and see what the results are! Incidentally, I am a 'True Lazurli Spring'. Interestingly enough, my 'best basic red', is a perfect match for the cardi below - and I always get lots of comments when I wear this!
Co-incidentally, I picked up some lovely fabric this week - an absolute bargain at $5/m from Fabricland and it has 4 of my colours in it. I plan on making a cardi and vest top with it - so by all accounts, It should suit me very well!
What do you think of this process? Utter bunkem, or a useful tool when is comes to looking your best?
