Valentina is a pair of comfy socks worked in one ball each of #9034 Nightshade and new color #9026 Cosmos. The legs are worked flat using intarsia to create the colorblock effect; then the heels are worked in one color. Stitches for the instep are picked up with the other color, and the foot of the sock is worked in the round to the toes.
