Purple Monday

For this morning's customer project feature, I have two pairs of socks to show you in two very different shades of purple.

First up are these lovely socks by Lynne, knit with FF Classic Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Wisteria colorway.

Lynne used Ann Budd's "On Your Toes" pattern from the current Summer 2007 issue of Interweave Knits. They feature an Eastern toe cast on, a modified short-row heel with no wraps, and a sewn bindoff.

Lovely work as always from Lynne!

On the other end of the purple spectrum, Sallie knit these fantastic socks in FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Midnight Passion colorway. She used the Oblique Openwork pattern from Charlene Schurch's Senstational Knitted Socks.

Beautiful job by Sallie! For a closer look at the details of these socks, as well as lots of other great projects, pop on over to Sallie's blog.

That's all for today. Be sure to tune in later this week because ... drumroll please ... I have news hot off the press coming soon!

Both pairs are Gorgeous! I've used the Wysteria colorway from you, too, and I just love it. But that deep purple is so rich, you almost fall into it.

They are both so pretty. The colors are so pretty.
