Gift Yarn Socks

superwash wool
10 grams of reinforcement yarn included
In September, I was pleased that my name was selected for Ellen's Indian Summer giveaway, as I was eager to see how this gorgeous yarn would stripe.

Imagine my surprise when I reached inside the skein to retrieve the end and discovered the spool of reinforcement yarn - a bonus.

Here's how the yarn is striping: the colors are transitioning from one to the other by alternating a few times. I used the reinforcement yarn on the heel flap and heel turn. Now that this sock is ready for the gusset, it will be fun to see what the yarn and stripes look like on the foot.

Thank you, Ellen for this beautiful and unique yarn.

  1. Beautiful job and beautiful yarn. I have learning to make sock on my list. I need to kick my behind into a higher gear so I can get to the socks.

  3. Really stunning yarn - looks just like the jewel tones found on the multi-colored ears of corn.

  4. Great sock colors for a lovely fall day. I'll be interested to find out how effective the reinforcement yarn is - once they start getting some wear.

  7. I love that Lang Jawoll does that and that their reinforcement yarn never fails to enhance the sock. The colors in this yarn are very Fall-ish and very pretty! Great gift.

  12. Very pretty, Nancy! Do reinforce all your socks? I've wondered about that, whether it really works.
