Crazy Socks

So, I had this Crazy Zauberball from Schoppel-Wolle in my stash forever. So long, in fact, I’m not even sure where it came from. And the tag was long gone, so I didn’t have much information about the yarn, except what I could Google up. But despite all that, the skein made a great pair of socks!

The great thing is that the striping came out similar but subtly different

I probably had been seduced by the primarily orange color but then chilled at the thought of tiny DPNs. So this marinated in my stash until I felt completely confident using tiny, fiddly needles.

It is a plain sock, no pattern really. I did about an inch-and-a-half of ribbed cuff and ribbed the heel so it fit a bit more snug.

They turned out fine. They are long, and wool, and colorful.

Here they are, basking in the sun, just waiting for an icy, snowy winter’s day!
