I started a new sock, mainly for two reasons. First, my eyes needed to take a break from yarn in the blue/purple/green end of the color spectrum. I wanted to work with some bright shades in my favorite colors: pink and orange. This yarn fit that requirement nicely.
The second reason I started a new sock is that I am making this sock for a dear old college roommate. This dear old college roommate is supposed to send me an outline of her foot so that I can get an idea of how long or short these socks should be. So, dear old college roommate, I know you’re reading this. Send me that piece of paper, lady.
