i couldn't decide which picture to use. the first seems so dull, and the other far more inaccurate, but more fun. anyhoo, i have about 6 inches of egg yoke yellow sock knitted. i did a bit of research of opal sock yarns on the net, and this particular pattern is called prisma. the more i look, the more i want opal.
as i suspected, i was too eager to start knitting. the research to knit a textured stitch pattern with the more solid looking yarn proved futile.
