These are bright orange, as in San Francisco Giants Orange. I can not say it enough, this pattern rocks and I get complimented every time for the beautiful cables and of course the bright colors. I use a nectarine so that you can actually compare the coloring. Thanks for stopping by!

You do such a lovely job with

You do such a lovely job with that pattern. Your collection of Brethren Socks is going to look like a box of crayons. Do you follow it exactly - even to the needle size?

Hey Ron. The pattern is

Hey Ron. The pattern is followed for gauge, I use a smaller needle US 1 2.25 mm as I am a bit of a loose knitter. Since I used double strands for reinforcement of the heel and toe, I need to do some modifying. I only modify the toe as doubling the yarn allows me to skip about 12 rounds of plain knit and still do the decreases at the toe level. I hope this answered your question.

I like the crayon box effect in my sock drawer!

I am not sure what I will be

I am not sure what I will be doing next, but Turquoise sounds nice, maybe a teal or another kind of bright green. Perhaps some flaming red!
