The yarn used in the sample is Holiday Yarns FlockSock, a sock yarn that was new to me and that I really enjoyed. It's a superwash merino/nylon blend with multiple plies, so it should be fairly durable in a sock. While I was waiting for the yarn support to arrive, I started another pair (in order to have a pair for myself and to do a dry run of the pattern) in the skein of Verdant Gryphon Eidos that I bought at MDSW last year or the year before. I'm not usually a yellow/orange person, but I love this golden hue.
I'm extremely honored to have a pattern in this issue, which is chock full of gorgeous designs. I highly encourage you to take a look at the full preview on Ravelry or on the Knitscene blog. There are quite a few patterns from this issue that I want to knit! Last I heard, the magazine was at the printer, so keep an eye out for it on the newsstand or at your local yarn shop very soon!
