I told my mom that I would cast on a sock with one of the colorways when I got home. I picked the one that isn't like anything else in my stash. I was so curious to see it knit up. I used a pattern that has a K2, P1 ribbing and a cable running on either side of the leg and foot. Can you see the cable on the sock?
Neither can I! Looks like this wasn't a good pattern for the yarn. I think I will frog it and start over. I am loving the yarn though. I love how it feels and it knits up really nice. The colors are so rich and gorgeous.
Remember when I started a sock at the Mariners Stitch N Pitch? Well I couldn't reveal it because it was a gift for my mom. I had hoped to finish the pair before my trip but was only able to almost finish one. I showed it to her when I was there and knit on it a little bit and she loved it. Yay!
I have built up quite a stash of sock yarn. It is even a little bit obscene. I took a picture to show you but I just can't bring myself to post it because you will think I have no control. Which up until now I haven't but that is all in the past because I am officially on a sock yarn diet! (the exclamation point is to show I have conviction) So from now on I will knit from my stash of sock yarn and the diet will go on for a long time. Let's just say I could knit from my stash for years.
P.S. Just because I am officially on a sock yarn diet doesn't mean that I won't be accepting sock yarn in gift form. Whew! Didn't want that misunderstood!
