Mad Color Weave socks in Crystal Palace Bamboo Silk

August 23, 2009

I must show off these lovely socks made of Crystal Palace Bamboo Silk in the Persimmon Tones colourway.

The pattern is Mad Color Weave by Tina Lorin, and it’s available for free. I love the way the stitch pattern shows off the intense bright colours of the yarn. The heel construction is interesting, too — it’s a method I hadn’t tried before, and I like the way it cups the heel.

We don’t have the Persimmon Tones colourway in stock at the moment, but there are several other enticing shades of Crystal Palace Bamboo Silk that could look fabulous in this pattern.

I knitted these socks for the winner of a charity auction in aid of the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009. Many thanks and love to the Red Cross and community volunteers for all the work they have done and continue to do to support those affected by the bushfires.
