The very first sock
Okay, I started my first sock. Ain't it pertty!
Last week at my knitting group we were discussing socks from striping yarns and how/if you should make them match. If you've read At Knit's End, there is a great little philosophy on this. One of my fellow knitters has started her second sock over multiple times to get it to match her first sock. I said that I didn't care if mine match and now that I see that they never will. Take a close look at the yarn that I'm using...there is no repeat! The color pattern is totally randomn. I'm almost to the heel of the first sock (which I can't figure out how to turn for the life of me) and the colors just go on and on. I think it's absolutely hilarious and great! Needless to say, I will have an interesting pair of socks.
