Just what I need, right? I mean, just how many do I have going at the moment? Let's not think about that, let's think about THIS:
This is Alchemy Temple, a 100% superfine Merino I've never worked with before but often admired. This was a total impulse purchase prompted by Laura's gorgeous striped knee-highs . . . when I saw her FO shot I just HAD to copy her! I really wanted that exact combo of pink and brown that she had, but couldn't find just the right shades in sock yarn, so ended up with this pairing in DK/worsted weight instead. The pink is much more of a raspberry color IRL than in this picture, but this is the best I could do (even with my fancy new camera, the truth is I still don't know how to take pictures!).
I'm going to make striped armwarmers instead of knee-highs . . . at this gauge, the project should be a true quickie! Assuming I don't get distracted, that is . . . .
Your socks will be awesome! I agree, Laura’s colour combo is so pretty.

I love love love the brown! Are those hints of mahogany and cherry in that brown skein?! Beautiful!
