While impatiently waiting for August 1 so I could legally start the KAL socks for August, I noticed this pattern in the Summer Knitty.
It was designed for wildly variegated sock yarn that otherwise would need to be knit in stockinette. Just happens I have some of that kind of yarn, so I dove into the stash, pulled it out, and cast on to give the Sunday Swing Pattern a try.
The pattern has four sizes: Cast on 56[64, 72, 80] stitches for 7(8, 9, 10) inches around. I used the 56 stitch chart.
The socks knit up quick and almost mindless. Since I'm frequently a pushover for variegated yarn, I'm sure I'll use the pattern again.
The leftover yarn was added to Sandy's "little ball" box before I mailed it out today.
Pattern: Sunday Swing Pattern by Kristel Nyberg.

Color: I don't know. It was a long, German word which I failed to write down and the label was sent off with the leftover yarn.
