Peony Socks

I bought this beautiful skein of Peony vegan sock yarn from SockPixie with some of my birthday money back in June. I wound it into a ball and waited. I had to finish my Francie socks before I could cast on and start another pair. I choose a simple Harris Tweed pattern because I knew intricate patterning wouldn't show up well with the beautiful variegated yarn.

Here's just the beginning of the sock. Hopefully this pair will come faster than the last.

That is very cool! I love to knit, but I can't make anything but a scarf. I wish I could follow designs and learn how to knit socks. How cool!

Lovely color for a pair of socks. The others came out very nicely.
