Sergenti SocksPosted: February 3, 2007
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Hand Painted Supersock, Sergenti, 1 skein
Pattern: My generic 56 stitch top-down sock with slip stitch heel
Needles: US # 1 / 32” Addi Turbos for Magic Loop
Thoughts: The Sergenti colorway wasn’t what I was expecting at all. I guess this is a major disadvantage of purchasing yarn online. The photo I saw showed lots of brown and magenta with mere hints of rusty orange and blue-ish gray. As you can see from my photos, there is a lot of navy blue and burgundy in this skein. Navy blue is one of my least favorite colors, especially when it is next to burgundy. Overall, this colorway was just a more masculine-looking than I anticipated. This was my first time knitting with Cherry Tree Hill, and I would definitely buy it again. Of course, I haven’t found a hand dyed/ hand painted yarn that I wouldn’t use again, so perhaps I’m just partial to the hand-dyed stuff!
