Candy Floss Socks

It's a shame that this yarn isn't available for sale, anymore, since it is such a soft and fluffy wool -- the stitches all came out so even and tidy, and it was a real pleasure to knit. Another factor for pleasurable knitting: I was using my new Knit Picks nickel-plated circulars, and knitting the socks magic-loop style. The stitches slid so smoothly along the needle and helped the knitting go fast.

There is a slow spiral of the colours which was totally unintentional on my part, and yet somehow they even seem to match up between the two socks -- a delightful surprise. I hope that they will stand up to use because I like them a lot. They fit perfectly and seem warm and toasty.
