Sometimes, it's a perfect match, even when they don't match!

Have you ever fallen in love with a pattern/yarn combination?

Leyburn Socks and Patons Stretch Socks was a nice combination, and I made lots of them.

But Hermione's Everyday Socks and Patons Kroy Sock FX is just golden. Also thick and warm and just the thing for this seriously cold winter.

I first tried Hermione on some sock yarn that had defied several tries to knit it up, Southwest Trading Company's TOFUtsies.




I was really pleased with the results, so I used the same pattern on my next socks. And there it was, the perfect marriage of pattern and fiber. I'll admit having to get over the fact that this yarn will not make matching socks. I love their warmth so much it was easy to get over.



I found some more of that yarn in my stash, so I did it again. Although given the color, is anyone surprised that these wound up in KD's sock drawer?

 

Wishing you warm feet this winter, and happy knitting all year!
