The sock turned out as pictured. The colors as pictured on my screen were very close to actual. I was really pleased with how you have to look really close to see where the colors changed. Between every color there are about 2 -3 stitches of mixed color that eases the transition from one color to the next. I have very sensitive skin, so I usually make socks out of merino, or fine highland wool yarn. This yarn is not as soft, but is okay for my sensitive skin. I chose this yarn since it promises longevity and most likely will purchase again.
