The sock pattern is Bovary by General Hogbuffer. It was a mystery pattern where you get a clue every week or so for four weeks. It was fun to do. The yarn is a touch darker in real life, more of a light olive. I liked it a lot. It is Peppino from The Yarns of Rhichard Devrieze. I have got to get some more of this stuff. It is nice and twisty and springy like Koigu. If memory serves, he used to be a dyer for them.
