Knitting: peacock socks.
Just like the rest of the socks I've knitted so far this year, there's not a lot to say about these! They're just plain vanilla socks. That's mostly what I stick with, especially when using variegated yarn.
I bought this yarn a few months back at the fiber festival. It's dyed by a somewhat local dyer, Unplanned Peacock Studio. This was her 2016 Olde Liberty Fibre Faire colorway. I love her sock yarn and buy a skein whenever I have the chance, but I always end up knitting it into something other than socks for myself. But now I finally have a pair from her yarn! I love the colors, and overall I'm pretty happy with how it worked up. There's a bit of pooling, but it's not too bad.
Plain socks might not be the most exciting knitting ever, but they sure are practical. :) It's very satisfying seeing my sock drawer fill up! And considering that most of my yarn is sock yarn, I need to keep knitting them at a steady pace if I'm ever going to shrink my stash.
