completely different


It strikes me as odd that the striping in the blue/green/yellow colourway is so dramatically different than the purple/blue/orange colourway. I hadn't expected that. It's not a concern - I like both effects - but it brings home the importance of seeing a swatch sample to predict how variegated yarn will knit up.

I will admit that I'm heartily sick of knitting socks now. I've knit nothing else for the last week. Just a few more days of sock knitting before I send off what I've finished. And then onto something new!

I keep waiting to get sick of socks, but it hasn't happened yet. I cast off for my nutlets and immediately wanted to cast on for another pair, even though I have one pair already on the needles.

I love the green sock! Those colours are so happy

if you change from a basic sock to one with cables for example you would enjoy it again!
