Purple Samarkand Socks

So I mentioned recently that I have become obsessed with purple and I think these socks are at the root of that.  I started them when I was suppose to be studying for finals and they went really quickly after that.  The yarn selection was a little haphazard.  I chose the pattern then cast on with the grey and realized that I never picked out a contrast color. I had a couple of ideas of what I wanted to use but I hadn’t actually decided on one yet!  I would like to say that I never do this but that’s not entirely true.  Selecting colors is always a “hope for the best” type situation.  The purple had been in my yarn stash for ages so I chose it and it was a match made in heaven! These colors work perfectly together!  I really am in love with how they turned out and I wear them every chance I get. They’re a little big, which I like.  If it gets super cold I can layer them up if I decide to go outside or I could just stay inside and be the couch potato I am.
