The package of wool didn't have a photograph showing the pattern these socks would show, so I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. These are a great color and pattern for wearing with blue jeans. After seeing them, I wished I had purchased more yarn in this pattern and color combination. The photo on the right shows the contrast between the yarn and the knitted pattern. The socks are a medium royal blue alternating with a white stripe containing charcoal grey highlights.
This soft, scrunchie, springy, 7 ply merino yarn makes a wonderfully light and warm night cap or chemo cap. The color 9452 (Field and Stream) has rich green, brown and violet hues. One ball of yarn was enough for a small cap (shown against an autumn landscape).
