Rivendell..............................a pair now

Finally finished! Rivendell socks in Skein Queen Plushness: smoked salmon. I used 2.75mm dpns and had 9 grams left over!!!!! The socks are size 5 1/2 UK and feel like velvet!!!

I was also amazed at the difference in the sock photographs depending on which background I placed them for the photography.

Red chenille throw


Cream pillowcase


Maple laminate floor

I must experiment some more :)

Very nice -- that's such an interesting pattern. :-)

I get that all the time with photos too. I sometimes wonder what the heck colour they really are. LOL!

they are stunning! Sometimes you need to adjust the whote balance on your camera to get the colours a bit more to the mark? Backgrounds can really confuse cameras...if you have a clever camera you can set the exposure to deal with a light or dark background.
