Behold the faux fair isle magic! (Was this yarn invented at Hogwarts?)
These were made for my miniscule elf feet out of Sirdar Crofter DK in 'Bracken', which means that they were a lovely fast knit. As far as knitting goes, it is as close as you can usually get to instant gratification.
And they're so plush... it feels like wearing slippers!
I might just be catching the sock bug... (rav details here: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/flockhartsl/crofters-fair-isle-sock)
