This yarn was dyed by Karen H, a member of my knitting group, during a group dying day. The socks were nearing completion when I LOST THEM! I thought they were lost while out holiday shopping and I retraced my steps and checked lost and founds and had totally given them up for lost, and yet I thought longingly of them every now and then. The yarn was so special, after all.
Then, during our remodel, when furniture was all moved, what should appear but the tiny carry-along knitting bag that these were stashed in. Hurrah!
The pattern is based on Wendy Johnson’s toe up gussetted sock, but I wildly improvised on the heel and gusset portion. The pattern on the cuff is a slip stitch pattern to really mix up the hand dyed colors. I hope I can remember what I was doing to create it.
