Pattern: My own
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns
Comments: The yarn is hand dyed, and I took advantage of the intermittent dashes of lighter blue by purling these stitches. It gives a slubbed texture to the sock and helped to keep me from nodding off as I knit my usual stockinette socks.
Knitting dark colored yarn is hard on the eyes, and photographing it is another challenge. I do like the finished product, however.
Here's a closeup of the purled stitches.
