Eagle Lake & knitSB's sock
The yarn I'm using is from Emeraldstitchnknits.blogspot.com
100% Superwash Merino
5sts=1" on a US #7 needle
approx. 270 yards in the 100 gram ball
The pattern was found on Ravelry "Anklet Slipper Socks" by Karen Konop.
I've not altered the pattern. These socks were knit from the top.
The yarn is soft on my hands and pleasing to knit. I just finished the first pair. It was so pleasing that I want to cast on a other pair! I know I have enough yarn for another short pair of socks. I enjoy the orange color and the purple over-dying. I can't tell how she dyed the purple. I think it is discharged or sprayed because the purple doesn't always go through the yarn. The previous statements are my own guesses as a non-dyer knitter. I hope I can get Esmeralda to do a vlog with me about her yarns.
