Are we there yet? Seafoam Socks

I love how these turned out. Just the way I wanted…after much trial and error!

Seafoam Socks
2 skeins Mirasol Hacho, size 2 Lantern Moon ebony Sox Stix

See the waves? The bubbles? And the sea foam at the rippling edges? I like how the pattern doesn’t fight with the variegated yarn. I’m playing with different yarns and gauges to finish writing the pattern; it will be along soon. By the way, I’ve started a sock with the Butternut Woolens sock yarn. Gorgeous! But it’s pretty heavy for a fingering weight yarn. It actually feels heftier than the Hacho, which is listed as dk weight. Funny how fingering can feel thin, thick, or in-between!
