Regia Rocks

These are the Colors of Provence socks from the Stephanie van der Linden book. I ended up with two different dye lots of the Regia Design Line Kaffe Fasset yarn. This was the only time I can remember working with two dye lots and having no trouble at all. I can't see any difference in the colors between the two. The color repeats were the same for both balls of yarn. I had to start a little way into the second ball to get to the point where I started with the first sock. The difference at the toe was only a couple of inches of yarn.

The yarn texture is excellent, too. I've been working with a lot of Knit Picks Palette lately. It's great for colorwork, but it is a bit splitty. Regia does not have the splitty problem. Yay, Regia!

I start Six Sock September on Saturday. This coincides nicely with the new season of Doctor Who. Yay, BBC America!
