Mingus Socks Done

The June/July KAL socks are done. (Previous posts here and here.) I've been a little distracted, spinning... in case you didn't notice! :)

Mingus two done

The July/August sock pattern is BFF, a simple cable design. I've started it using The Unique Sheep's Tinsel Toes yarn in a Gradiance colorway called "Cheer." The Gradiance colors are sets of four colors that are alternated to make the sock change color from one tip to the other.

There are sock instructions for using the yarns on The Unique Sheep site, here. It occurs to me that a person could use four custom-mixed handspun colors following the same basic instructions. Hmmm...

Happy Knitting,
Lisa Kay
