Round and round

Got a new installment of Vesper sock club yarn in the mail today:


Julia's added some variegated yarn to the shop!

I haven't had great luck pairing variegated yarns with the right sort of pattern so far, but I adore all the colours in this skein, so I couldn't resist getting it right onto the swift:


The colour repeats are very short and unsubtle:


That could make for some wild socks I can just work in stocking stitch... or maybe I should hold out for a really, really simple shawl/scarf thing that patterns itself. I left it in one cake while I decide, rather than dividing it into two for socks. But I think I might lean toward the longest socks I can manage, worked toe-up with an afterthought heel. I've been wanting to try that for a while and a yarn like this would be perfect for the job, don't you think?

Great colours! My vote goes to the scarf/shawl if you have enough yarn.
