Some time ago, on a trip to Austin, Texas, I visited several yarn shops – sort of my own mini yarn crawl. I wrote about the darling yarn stores I visited here. On that trip, I purchased this multicolored skein of Cross Creek Sock yarn in Africa Kente Cloth (Color 039/002).
This skein is 468 Yards / 100 Grams of 75% Merino (Superwash) / 25% Nylon.
I had knit several pairs of socks but none for my son. He told me he liked bold colors so this was the yarn for him. After a few rounds, I could see the swathes of color emerging.
I was still in graduate school so I carried the yarn with me and snuck in knitting time when I could. Those nifty knitting tubes are great! I never worried about losing stitches since there were long periods between my knitting sessions.
Things seemed to go faster once I cast on the second sock.
Just look at those rich colors!
As soon as I finished knitting them, my son tried them on and I haven’t seen them since.
I tried to get a photo of them on his feet but he was gone back to college before I had a chance. I guess he liked them.

Amazing stunning socks. I recognize the colours so quickly. We have a large Kente cloth hanging in our office sute reception. 🙂 Brilliant and colourful and bold. Your socks are perfect. I bet your son loves them indeed.
