Self-Patterned Socks In the Snow

Striped sock in progress

I don't buy self-patterning yarn. Why should the yarn designer have all the fun? I pattern my own socks, thank you very much. However, my wonderfully-named friend Merrily bought this "Froehlich Wolle Blauband MaxiRingel" sock yarn, and mailed it from Michigan on her grand tour of the West. It's quite delightful, and I never would have thought to put a coral stripe in this violet medley. Unfortunately, the yarn is discontinued. Note to self: use more discordant colors in Fair Isle socks.
