Because they're not getting done fast enough because, well, LifeStuff



The yarns are Ella rae Classic Superwash (turquoise) and Cascade 220 Handpainted (the blend isn't quite that dark--more muted--but to get the turquoise to show up turquoise I had to let the blend stay darker.)  Oh, and there are two rows of Cascade 220 Orchid Heather, a souvenir from socks that color I knit for a friend.

For extreme contrast...here are the Sunset/Desert Canyon socks on my feet:

This image shows the two additional reds on the right sock (you can barely see a faint line of difference about 2/3 of the way along the widest red stripe--the more distinct purplish red was undernearth) and the warm brownish-red on the left foot (just beyond the blue stripe) and on the right between the purple stripe and the narrow blue one.

It's definitely intended to evoke tropical waters...though for those of us in a hot, dry region, tropical waters can seem delightfully cool (or, if you're in cold rain, delightfully warm.)

Sea breeze off the water...cooler than interior forest heat. Deserts may get cold at night, but some really don't--hot air can be trapped between mountain ranges, so there's no relief at night.

When I was a kid in S. Texas (sub-tropical) we had the heat, but also (except in worst drought years) a night-time breeze from the Gulf. We were on the edge of how far it reached, but occasional trips to the coast proved nights were much cooler there. And you could go in the water and back out to cool off from the breeze.

Thanks. They're comfortable, too. I had no idea how comfortable these short ones could be in summer until I knit a pair last summer.
