The Caper Sock Yarn from String Theory is one of my very favorite yarns. I like it because it’s thick enough that I don’t feel like I’m knitting with string, and it’s springy and spongey and feels fantastic.
The socks I’m currently working on are Caper and the color is Sandy River. Since I’m giving those to the mechanic’s wife, I debated about whether to order a replacement skein in the same color. I have plenty of yarn so I almost didn’t but then I figured I’d always wish I had so I did. Can you see the difference in the color? The one on the left that I’m using has more muted color . . more pink while the new skein has more coral. I’m fine with either but this is the reason they always recommend buying all your yarn for one project at the same time from the same dye lot.
