Opal van Gogh

Opal has a creative new line of sock yarns.  The colors are taken from paintings by Vincent van Gogh.  I decided to get the Starry Night colorway.

Opal sock yarn is one of my favorites (Regia is another).  The colors are great, the quality is excellent, the balls have generous yardage and I find that the socks are long wearing.  Someday, when I've made a dent in my stash of sock yarns, I may get some of the others van Gogh shades. 


Pattern:  Generic
60 sts, 2x2 ribbing, stocking stitch legs and feet, short row heel

Color #5435 - Starry Night

This is pair #5 in my attempt to finish a minimum of 12 pairs of socks in 2012.

What an appropriate name for that yarn, a perfect interpretation from what I can see.
