Faux-noro Socks

It's been so long since I blogged, difficult to sign in. For many moons I have wanted to make Noro-striped socks. Accumulated a huge bag of the sock yarns, even swatched but it JUST WASN"T RIGHT. Purely by accident unwound this roving from Woolamina and found it suitable to spin a color-block with. N-plied, 4 oz. The socks didn't last long enough for the gold to be used. Colors are every shade of brick red and nile green. Corriedale, soft enough. Haven't washed them yet.
Finished a week ago but had trouble scheduling my model Alison for the photoshoot. Assisted by Mikey whose favorite wool is Corriedale.
