My LYS is having a Sock Club where we are knitting a pair of socks every month. Our teacher, Jeannie, has chosen this book for most of the socks we will be knitting.
It has a lot of great patterns and I am really excited about getting together with friends every month and starting the same project. Our teacher had cast on for this sock three different times with three different yarns to find one that you could see the pattern of the sock. I was very choosy with my yarn knowing this. I picked out this pretty Koigu sock yarn in yellows and greens. I figured it would be perfect for this pattern.
As I knit the cuff it was looking great but when I got into the leg of the sock the colors started to pool, and not in a good way. All the
light seafoam green and peachy yellow were on one side…
…and all the green darker green and yellow were on the other. So ugly! And who knew what the second sock would end up looking like. So I frogged it.
Here is the other side of the sock, looks good too.
I cast on the second sock and the color is working out well on that one too. It is going to be so fun to see how everyone’s socks turned out later this month!
I have always wanted to make a rainbow quilt and I am really excited about what I am going to make. I want to use these fabrics pictured below. I’m not sure yet on all of them (too much white in some of those reds) and need to find some more of some colors as well.
I want to have the color gradate across the quilt diagonally with a white background. I really want to use all stash for this so I am going to have to dig deep to find fabric that will work.
