I love Chroma fingering yarn but for socks I think it needs to have more stitches so that the colors meld together better. I have done quite a few pairs using this yarn and find it would be better suited for shawls, scarves etc.
The worsted is just as nice. Both weights do not have much of a twist so it is more like hand spun yarn; some fat and some thin parts in the strands.

I, too, really like Chroma. I just bought some to try socks with. I like how yours turned out so I'm going to try it. Love Chroma for vests and scarves.

I like using it only because the colors never match, nor can you match them. I am partial to having both socks look the same but with Chroma you just get a little of each color in each sock so they are more a crazy pair.
Now I am working on a pair using all of the left over sock yarn. They really will be a crazy pair.

Your socks are fabulous as well as your scarf!

Chroma is one of my absolute all time favorite yarns. I used the worsted to make a BJS and it turned out wonderful. I always get a lot of ooos and ahhhs when I give a knitted gift of anything made with chroma. This is one of my favorites I made for my granddaughter - she initially wore it as a dress - now it has become a shorter tunic!

I like chroma also. I made a beautiful scarf for a friend with the Galapagos color.

Love it. I like it when the colors spread out like yours did and become stripes instead of pooling as it does in some patterns.

I think we used the same colors
