Yellow is my sister's favorite color.
Completed in 2011, the year I knit a "sock wardrobe" for my sister

I purchased this sock yarn from Yarn Undyed, at the fabled Woolfest up in the Lake District near the Scottish border. Woolfest is such big fun!

The fiber content is 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon for strength.

I really liked knitting with this yarn. I will buy it again.

I knit the socks in the yarn's natural white state. I then dropped the completed socks in the dye bath with my favorite Jacquard brand acid dyes.

I knit the lacey cuff as such:

Row 1: Slip 1, k2, psso, p1
Row 2: K1, yo, k1, p1
Rows 3 and 4: K3, p1

This is a nice little rib that I often use.
