Amethyst Socks

Here’s the February installment of #operationsockdrawer2017. Named Amethyst for the gorgeous color of this Barrett Wool Co. yarn (Pepin colorway) and as a nod to February’s birthstone. This color was so difficult to photograph, but trust me when I say it is a true, deep amethyst purple. Gorgeous. 

This was my first attempt knitting a toe up sock and using the magic loop method instead of DPNs. I used this pattern, but added the cables for some interest. I love the the magic loop method, will definitely use it again, but not a fan of the heel construction. Might have to look for a different version, because I did like this construction. (Complete details can be found on Ravelry.)

I finished these mid-February, but it took time for me to block and photograph them. I’m already on my second sock for March. I don’t want to jinx myself, but I might be able to bang out two pairs for that month. Or I might try to take on something new, we’ll see.
