Brethren in Blues

Image
Here is the Brethren in Blue. This is a great yarn that has subtle purple spots around. By now I can say with certainty that given the right circumstances, I can knit a pair of Brethren socks in under two weeks.

I am hoping to make more colors including the boring natural white, but hey, no color is boring! I hope you enjoy the color and thanks for stopping by!!!!
Just another view of this wonderful pattern, you can find it on Ravelryhttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-brethren-sock
