#6 Opal Socks

When I first started knitting socks a few years back, I would see this lovely Opal yarn in magazines and on web sites and drool at the colourways, but alas my LYS didn't carry Opal and I couldn't find it anywhere locally without ordering online. 

Well, Camilla Valley Farm is now carrying several colourways of Opal. Insert Happy Dance here :D 

Last time I was by the farm located on the Blind Line just north of Orangeville, Ontario, I picked up several balls. This pair of socks are the first ones I've knit. I really like the yarn but it's not as heavy as Kroy. 

It's quite a long repeat in the striping with only a little over 3 repeats per sock in a ladies medium size. 

Yarn: Zwerger Garn Opal Hundertwasser
Colourway: 3202
Needle: 2.25 mm
Pattern: No pattern. Plain top cuff down sock. 
Completed: April 19, 2016
