Knitting socks with hand painted yarn can sometimes be tricky. Lace stitch patterns can be lost in the often wild colours. I wanted to design a sock that showcased some crazy hand painted yarns in a way that was simple, fun and delightfully beautiful.

I used about 75g of the main colour and 25g of the contrasting colour.
