I finished my WendyKnits Sunrise sock, and I’m really happy with the way it turned out. Ironically, I took these pictures in the earliest morning sunlight, so the colors look little bluer and less bright than they are in person. This pattern is an excellent one for multi-colored sock yarn. The simple texture pattern really shows off the colors, and it’s just easy-yet-engaging enough to…

So I basically took pictures of all of my yarn in advance, and I’ve been delivering them to you for Fiber Fridays in order of appearance. Today, I am…
