About Gradient Matching Socks Sets
Dyed-to-match gradient socks sets make perfect slow-striping socks. You choose to start from the center of the cake or the outside! If you start with the same color for each sock, you'll have maternal twins - every stitch of one sock matches the other exactly.
About this Size
Medium socks - A medium socks set has 2 identical cakes that total 75g of fingering weight yarn. This makes a crew sock for women's size 6-9. If you want larger socks or just longer cuffs, look for a "large socks set". We recommend working toe-up socks whenever possible so you never stop knitting before your gradient finishes with a flourish.
About this Color
This is one of our Panoramic Gradients. These colorways are carefully designed to evoke memories of landscapes or films or poems. There are usually two or three colors in a Panoramic Gradient, as opposed to a Chromatic Gradient, which has many shades of one color.
*Mithrandir Panoramic Gradient* is named for the elves' name for Gandalf the Grey, wizard whose work upon Middle Earth was completed by destroying Sauron. Maybe you don't need to wander the hills, fall into shadow while battling a fire demon or lead a battle charge upon your horse Shadowfax, but you may still want to consider this piece of advice from Gandalf: "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” (So spend your time knitting!)

- We’ve made every effort to photograph the color accurately, but appearance may vary depending on your monitor settings.
