March’s socks for Operation Sock Drawer are complete. I absolutely loved this self-striping sock yarn from Must Stash Yarn & Fiber. The color-way is Martian Rainbow, hence the name for this month. It was a bit addicting to watch the colors emerge (thrilling, I know) and blend from one to the next. This was a “perfect match” yarn, meaning that the skein was split in two and matched, making it possible to make the stripes align for both socks. I used the Smooth Operators Socks by Susan B. Anderson. This is a top-down construction with an afterthought heel. (Full details on Raverly.)
Joe was quite enamored with these while I was working on them, wanting to have them for himself. Since I had enough leftover yarn, I decided to knit up a pair just for him. Finished just in time for his birthday.
