This is the most amazing color! Such a deep rich purple! I've got it lined up for a color work shawl before the summer is out. Bis-sock is so wonderful to knit with - soft, gorgeous colors always, and such great stitch definition!
I love working with Bis-sock! It's so nice and soft but still has really great stitch definition! The colors are really wonderful - the range of greens especially is so appealing! I just finished a pair of twisted stitch socks in Limette and they are just a breath of spring!
I love making socks (and shawls) with Bis-sock. It has great stitch definition, is wonderful soft in the hands to work with, and has the best colors. I recently used Farfadet to make a pair of colorwork socks and it looked fantastic!
I thought it was navy and yellow, turned out to be purple and yellow. It will still make fun socks, just not the right colors for the sports team. Oh, well.
This yarn has stunning color and feels wonderful to the touch. I just wish I had realized that I could have gotten it in DC. Either way, it's wonderful!
