Lorna’s Laces yarns makes a beautiful lofty fabric but I find this palette to be unattractive. This is a problem that generally plagues all variegated sock yarns. First, I don’t understand why any variegated sock yarn would have skinny one or two row bands of colors before switching to the next color which seems unfortunately de rigueur for all multicolored sock yarns. There’s no way any color would have enough of a presence if it’s only present in quarter inch increments. Second, I don’t see the wisdom in having a sock yarn with so many colors. This colorway has pink, purple, blue, green, and yellow. While each individual color is gorgeous and muted, put five of them together striping at such frequent intervals and it just looks barfy, especially since socks aren’t something viewed up close.
Anyway, these are around the house socks, and I also intend to wear them under galoshes. My feet overheat easily in shoes, so these are appropriate for shoes that don’t insulate, and to make me more comfortable in my apartment this winter. They were knit toe up with a short row toe and a short row heel. I cast on 8 fewer stitches than in the pattern because I have slender feet. I do love this yarn for tactile reasons. And that is all I have to say about socks.
