Christie brought me the prettiest and softest sock yarn during her AGU visit back from South Africa. It was hand-dyed by Nurturing Fibres who also has an Etsy shop. I wanted to make something for myself, but the socks have been really slow going lately. I knitted this moebius instead, using the old shale lace pattern. It's rufflier than I expected, but the little orange glass beads I put in the last few rounds make up for that. The yarn looked like broccoli colors or peas, and I thought the orange carrot bits made a lovely neck salad.
