Wild Berry Zinger Socks

finished wild berry zinger socks

These are my third pair for April, and they are finally a pair for me! I used Wollmeise yarn in "Maria's Deepest Purple" knit two at a time toe-up (on Addi 2.5mm circs magic loop) to see how long I could get them, and I stopped at knee socks with yarn left over; Her skeins are incredibly long! I made some increases for the calf and the cuff is a twisted stitch 1x1 rib. This weekend I also got to meet the Wollmeise in person and she is incredibly nice. I brought home quite a few of her gorgeous colors, each saturated and wonderfully tonal. I can't wait to start my next pair. ~ fabienne
