More experimenting with blending yarns. Here's another little sock - probably for Charlie. There's a lot of white in parts of the blue/orange yarn which gives it a vaguely Scandinavian look to me. I doubt I'll be able to match each sock exactly.
This technique seems to work better when there are shorter random color lengths otherwise it just ends up looking striped. I also think the cotton yarns give a softer blending than the strong colors in wool sock yarns. But maybe I just haven't tried the right combination. There's lots to choose from.
