BFL sock yarn - for the final pair.
Despite what your eyes are telling you, this colourway features some fun fuchsia (not reddish) stripes on a super bright lime background. In a fuzzy BFL sock yarn, they make some pretty warm, sturdy, and spectacular socks.
I did my basic sock, toe up with an afterthought heel, and tried the round decreases on the heel again. This time I used the kitchener stitch to graft the last six stitches together, which I think makes a nicer close than just threading the loose end through and pulling tight. I am growing to like the round heel, although for some reason it makes the instep tighter, I think, so I'm still working out the kinks in that.
Is it crazy that I've been wanting to order more variegated yarns to make socks?
