Sneak peek at Tropical Lagoon Socks


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.
