Socks of many colors

I began a pair of Simple Skyp Socks the other night when I realized I’d left my other sock project in my office.   It’s hard for me not to have a pair of socks around for knitting.  As my friend Jane Foster aptly puts it, “Socks are comforting.”  skyp-2I’ve seen Angela knit this pattern a couple of times, so they have been in my mind to use with heavily variegated yarn.  The yarn is Manos Alegria in the colorway Pindo.  I wasn’t sure I was completely fond of the color shifts until I hit the skyp part of the pattern.  If you’ve ever made Charade socks, the interesting part of the pattern will be familiar to you.  This is Charade with the addition of some purling.  I think both patterns are brilliant with lots of shifting colors and the rhythm of the knitting is focused enough to engage you lightly, but I also find it to be a wine and knit night friendly project.

skypAh, the colors.

  1. Love this colourway. I really like the way the herringbone/skyp columns jumble the colours in the yarn. I’m knitting my current Skyps with Alegria too – it’s the first time I’ve knit with the yarn and I love how soft it is.
