Knitting makes me happy, computers keep me humble.

Use a slip stitch pattern to give variegated yarn the color "feel" of how the color looks in the ball. This is the lovely Lorna's Laces Sockknitter's Rainbow yarn on a background of black alpaca from Ozyarn...the alpaca is super soft and silky...not to mention that Judy mailed it from Australia on Thursday and I received it on Monday!

The slip stitch pattern is a variation on the one used in the child's sweater "Color at Play" in Knitters #62, Spring 2001...plopped onto a generic sock pattern :-) After seeing Jackie's "Circle of Friends" sock, I wondered what it would look like in two colors...stained glass effect.

I made them on size 2.25mm needles rather than my usual 2.00mm because I expect the alpaca to shrink a little...and no, I never hand wash...doing the body of the foot on 2.mms...

If you need a pattern...get Jackie's which has a slightly different slip stitch pattern(bigger lozenges and lovely traveling stitch cables)...and use two colors instead of one...
