My October synesthesia socks turned out great! You may recognize these socks as the Brezel Socken design from this past May. My original pair used a medium weight sock yarn which as it turns out I’m not super keen on. However I liked the cable detail so much I thought I’d try again using a lighter weight yarn.
This yarn is absolutely decadent! It’s extremely soft and cozy, and the colorway “Midnight Blue” reminds me of my favorite pair of blue jeans. So yeah, I’m pretty happy with my October synesthesia socks. Too bad I can’t keep them, though I do foresee a pair for ME in the future…
