The gold, green and purple inspired the name. This is Michaels craft stores branded yarn, loops and threads luxury sock yarn in the canyon colorway. 60% super wash wool, 30% percent nylon, 10% cashmere. Really soft and I enjoyed knitting it.

Two at a time toe up on one circular using Judy's magic cast on, a no wrap, no holes heel (a mishmash of the fleegle heel and was inspired by Cat Bordhi's sweet tomato heels.) Plain knitting on the soles, simple 2 x 2 ribbing on the top and leg. Cast off using Jen's surprisingly stretchy bind off, which I love for socks!



And even though it's super wash, the label says hand wash. I hope mother doesn't mind that extra step.
