Marjorie's husband Jim is the happy recipient of these little beauties:
Marjorie knit these socks with FF Tight Twist Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Earthenware colorway. She let him pick the color himself and I think he did a splendid job, considering that Marjorie reports that most of his socks are just black or brown. The subtlety of the color shifts in this yarn apparently persuaded him that a bit of color in one's life is not such a scary thing! Marjorie kept the pattern simple to suit his tastes and did a basic ribbing with the added detail of a single cable repeat a couple of inches down from the top.
You can see lots more of Marjorie's work on Ravelry where she is mmarker.
Before I sign off for the day, just a quick note for anyone who missed it . . . scroll down to yesterday's post for the latest in the parade of sale items I've been listing this month.
Happy Monday to all!
