Blubarb crisp

A friend who came to visit and knit yesterday remarked that the blubarb crisp I served her went well with the flowers in the vase. It later occurred to me that the sock I am working on fit the color scheme as well! I think there is a pattern emerging here.

I knit the sock using the tutorial on yarnover short rows

Yarnover short rows seemed easier than the wrap short rows. The plum yarn is wool from my sheep processed and pin drafted at Loch’s Fiber Mill in Springville, PA. Jamie does a great job!
The turquoise blue blend in the heel and toe is a combination of my wool and mohair for strength carded at home.
