Stripes

26 January, 2009 at 3:55 pm (knitting)

Busy weekends don’t leave much time for knitting (or blogging!), but I did get in a start on a wonderfully stripey sock.

The yarn (Noro Silk Garden Sock) is just as ridiculously thick-thin and VM filled as I was warned it would be, but I’m kind of liking the fabric it’s working up into—soft, but with a definite woolly feel. These should wear well, which is good, because I anticipate wanting to wear them all the time.

I may have miscalculated a bit, though; I hid the color change seam at the underside of the foot, but it turns out it’s not particularly visible anyway, and it may make the heel turn tricky. Hopefully I can work something out. We’ll see.

    Ooh, looks fab. Yeah, Silk Garden Sock is thick/thin and full of VM, but it’s gorgeous, regardless.

    Could you possibly scooch the start of the round over to the side of the sock, instead?
