Byzantine Twisted Socks

Posted on

I finished my Wedge socks (photos soon) and was so excited to immediately cast on a new pair using the divine Knitwhits Freia Flux sock yarn.

The colorway is Byzantine, isn’t it pretty?

The colors begin with a rich cocoa brown that morphs to spring green, then to loden, to purple, to raspberry, to rust, to mauve, to periwinkle then back to cocoa.

One of my many things I love about this yarn is the subtle and lovely way Tina Whitmore transitions her colors, and then there is the exceptional softness of the wool, like baby lambs ears.

I am rushing as quickly as I can from color to color and the speedy pattern of Twisted by Jodie Gordon Lucas makes this a brainless pleasure. This pattern is one of my favorites when I can’t handle a complicated lace design.

I hope to show you a finished sock soon!

What sock pattern is your go-to??

    My special someone who loves your knitting asked the other day, “Did H knit these socks?’ I said Yes. He said that he really found them soooo comfortable . . . I wonder if that was a non-subtle hint? Your knitting is like magic – one minute it is a fluff of yarn and the next minute it is beautiful, warm and cozy. What a nice way to use the time while recovering from whatever fate has sent you. Loving thoughts from us.
