Green With Envy

I'm green with envy this morning over Marjorie's socks, knit with FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Envy colorway. Not only are the socks beautiful enough to stir up a bit of envy, but somehow Marjorie also managed to capture the color nicely in her photos. I had a terrible time photographing this yarn and the photos in my shop listings just don't capture it well. No such problems with Marjorie's photos.

Marjorie used the Four Stitch Pattern from Charlene Schurch's book More Sensational Socks. You can see a bit more of the beautiful detail in this photo:

Beautiful work, Marjorie!

So many of you have been sending me photos of great socks knit from the Sensational Socks book that I think perhaps I may be forced to pick up a copy of my own soon.

You can see more of Marjorie's lovely work on Ravelry. She's mmarker.

Everyone have a great start to the week!

I'm not a big green fan but I love that shade!

That's the perfect color for St. Patrick's Day socks. Marjorie's knitting is so beautiful!

That's a great looking sock and the color is excellent.

I always have trouble photographing reds, purples and greens.

Those are great socks! I love that colour of green! You did them really well and they look really comfy too :)

That color green is beautiful. I've yet to make a pair of socks. Maybe someday in the future.

Yours look very comfortable!

Cute socks! I love how you have displayed your yarn too.

Dear Deb, Thanks so much for featuring my socks. What a surprise! I'm working on a new pair using Lust and a Triangle design on the cuff. I've finished one and will post it in Ravelry. The Green Envy socks were made for my daughter and she loves them! Thank you so much for your beautiful yarns. It makes it a pleasure to knit sock.

All the best, Marjorie (MMarker) on Ravelry
