In my last post I mentioned something with this pair that I wasn't happy with. Well now all is revealed:

'Flashing' issues in Evolution

I absolutely adore this yarn & would like to Thank Alice for the yarn as a gift The yarn was suitably squidgy for a hand knit but I can't imagine doing anything else than wear these socks in bed so bed socks they are.

They are very nice, its a shame about the pooling though as otherwise the colours are so pretty together.

Love the stitch pattern! They will last longer as bed socks...

with variegated yarns, there will be a v if you do a heel flap - something to do with how the yarn is dyed up and the gauge. Next time try a short row heel, it should be better with the flashing.
