Finished Objects: Byzantine Twisted Socks

20121110-190900.jpg

It has been quite a while since I finished these socks and I have been wearing them a lot. The yarn from Freia Handpaint Fibers is so soft and lovely I just never want to take them off.

Interestingly enough I chatted with Tina Whitmore about this yarn and she told me a horrific tale about how the dyeing of this particular yarn and how it produced such toxic fumes that she became very ill. Obviously the health of the yarn producer or any worker is critically important and she will not be using these dyes ever again.

Meantime I will wear them with joy and apologize mentally to Tina for her suffering each time.
