Also, the Kroy FX line can have skeins look completely different when knit up even though they are in the same dye lot.
However, I love the finished socks. They are always so cozy and feel like they will last forever. The Kroy yarn is also very affordable and easily available in local craft stores.
This colorway (Discontinued - Clay Colors) was not the most exciting to see develop when knitting, but I now see that they will look great with every pair of jeans I wear.
