I have tried to photograph this sock in progress in every kind of light. In natural afternoon light, in natural morning light, in unnatural nighttime light with a flash. I cannot capture the colors. This is the Noro Kureyon sock yarn in a Kaibashira pattern. I can't link to the pattern because I got it on Magknits and we all know what happened to them. I love the pattern because it is subtle and does not fight with the colors in the yarn. These colors are much more intense than my camera can record. That blue is really a deep purple and that bit of green at the botom is almost an acid green. These are not colors for the faint of heart! The yarn itself is rather scratchy (although I have read that it will soften up when I wash it) and it is very unevenly spun. If you're uncomfortable with that, this is probably not the sock yarn for you, despite the colors.
I spent yesterday working on this and listening to Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein. One of my alltime favorite books. When you listen to a book, it's hard to skim through the parts that look boring which I tend to do when reading. Once again, I was struck by how political his books are. If you've never read this, it's entertaining and thought provoking.
And to end on a positive note, I give you the Buddhist Inspiration for the day:
When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.
Are you a wall builder or a windmill builder? Discuss.
