The color of autumn

I had no idea when I took this picture that the color on my socks mimicked the color of the autumn leaves.

This is blue moon fiber arts socks that rock mediumweight. The pattern is BFF socks from Cookie A. The difference in color patterning comes from decreasing the back cables over the instep. But those of us who use socks that rock have come to expect the interesting pooling effects!  For cabled socks, these are crazy stretchy.

 

I had my cousin John knit a row on the foot of the sock. He must be a good knitter, since I can’t even see where he put his row. I like the fact that I have pairs of socks which have stitches from people important to me.
