Okay guys, for those of you who remember my post
about confusion with self striping yarns, we concluded that the only way to know for sure if it was striping the same way was to check before you started knitting. Ah well, so much for finding something normal for that, right? Anyway, I finished the socks I was talking about.( Collapse )
The yarn was Limbo Mexiko
, a DK weight self-striper in some kind of discontinued color. I knit them without a pattern toe-up on two US2 circs (both socks at the same time), doing a figure 8 toe and short-row heel, with 2x2 ribbing at the top. It is my first pair for the Cirque du Socks
knitalong. I'm working on my second pair in SWTC Karaoke
now. In the pictures you can also see my two homemade sock blockers I made out of wire hangers. I didn't really make them to block
socks, but so I had something to take pictures on. I was sick of my socks looking dumb.
PS: i'm destashing so right now and over the next few days I'm going to be selling yarn at my Etsy Store
, at a discount over what it retails for so you might want to check it out.
