I finished a pair of socks last week. I thought the green yarn would be more solid and was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. If you look closely at the photos, you can see the subtle changes of colors. That's especially appropriate for a lace pattern. I liked the color so much, I bought more this morning. I also made the cuff shorter since the ladies I knit for like shorter socks but I now regret that. Don't the socks look stunted without a longer cuff? I am pleased though. They were a quick knit. Oh, and stretchy!
