sample sock

amythefibergoddess, asked me in august to test-knit with her new yarn. she had sent wool the mill to be spun with nylon for sock yarn. she hand-paints the skeins and then sells them at the finger lakes fiber fest in her booth - stone edge fibers.
so, she dyed this to my request in more than ample time for me to have a pair done. well, life kicked me in the butt and i have just completed this one. it is quite lovely. i adapted several patterns, and even tossed in some of my own design. my gauge was 7.5 sts/inch on a us 1 needle. i used my kollage squares and liked them very much.
soooooo, at least their will be one sock on display!
