June is strawberry picking time in the Northeast and especially on the East End of Long Island. This yarn reminded me of the contrast of bright red strawberries and there small golden seeds. The pattern helps bring out the great qualities of the yarn. These are shorter socks to make them the perfect summer knit.

Note: you can make them into a cuffed sock if desired
