Gorgeous

I return to sock knitting with a pair of Skew socks in Järbo Garn’s Mellanraggi, which is a sport weight sock yarn.
Saw this skein in a bin at the supermarket and I bought it to cheer myself up. Self-patterning yarns are fun! this one does sport some delightfully hideous colours (who doesn’t love teal, purple and orange together?) and unfortunate pooling. Was hoping the pattern would make the most of it and so far I’m not disappointed.
