The Unique Sheep creates amazing gradiance yarn collections for socks, scarves and shawls. They dye the skeins in a series of complementing colors which, when knit in an overlapping series, create a beautiful gradation of color.
I got this sock set in the colorway Nox from Simply Sock Yarn.
The pattern pictured is from the book Sock Club which is a collection of different patterns from a variety of sock knitting clubs.
I really enjoyed the yarn and the color changes kept me really amused. So amused in fact that I ignored my gut need for symmetry and went with the mismatched concept. It's a good thing that I really enjoyed knitting these...
because I would surely develop some sort of nervous tic if I were to ever actually wear them.
