Mountain Blueberry Socks

Mountain Blueberry Socks knit for a colleague.

I used Mountain Colors Bearfoot yarn in colorway Mountain Twilight. In reality it’s a deep, rich mix of purples, deep blues and just a bit of a purpley chocolate. My camera does not play well with these colors and this is the best I could do. The picture in no way represents the beauty of this yarn. It was nice to knit with, too — very soft and cozy.

I did take this pic outside so I would have natural light. See on the bare branches of my Japanese maple? Yeah… that’s frost. It was cold, cold, cold January morning (cold by Portland standards). I shivered in the cold as I stood outside in cotton pants, a sweatshirt and sockless feet inside a pair of clogs, taking pictures of socks draped across a bare bush. It’s OK. My neighbors are used to my eccentric ways.

The Particulars:

  • Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot (60% Superwash Wool, 25% Mohair, 15% Nylon/ 100g, 350yds per skein) in colorway Mountain Twilight — allmost all of one skein.
  • Needles: Knitpicks Classic circulars, US#1 (2.5mm).
  • Pattern: Blueberry Waffle stitch, used with my own standard sock pattern.
  • Techniques used:
    • Knit toe-up, two at a time, on double circulars.
    • I used the Magic Cast On.
    • The heel flap is worked in Eye of Partridge stitch. I added garter stitch edges.
    • The cuff is 1×1 ribbing.
    • Kitchener (grafted, tubular) bind-off.

  • Thought of the Minute
    • Evil is like a shadow - it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.
