You know how sometimes when you start a project, thinking it’s going to be beautiful, and it turns out totally different than you expected, and not quite so beautiful?
I purchased this Knit Picks Essential Sock Yarn in Riberbend Multi, thinking it would be really pretty. The problem is that the sock is designed for hand dyed yarns and I think this yarn is what’s called space dyed. BIG difference. I AM still learning about all these wonderful new yarns. This could be why the yarn was on clearance, though.
Anyway, after three repeats of the lace pattern I can’t decide whether this sock is ugly or interesting. It’s definitely not the right kind of yarn, still it’s kind of fascinating the way the color spaces seem to be spiraling down the sock leg.
It’s supposed to look like this (picture on knitty.com):
But mine is looking like this. Here are 360 degrees of pictures of MY sock:
I’ve been debating all morning whether to frog or keep going. I’d love some opinions. Please be honest: FROG or KEEP GOING? Be assured, I am not adverse to frogging, ‘just not sure whether I should.
Hey! What about this thought: I keep going, finish the socks, and call them my Funky Monkey socks?
After a rough start this weekend I’ve also gotten past the hard part (I think) of my first entrelac project. More on that later….
The colors in the pics are way more blue and less purpley than actual.
Still working on March TIF. ‘Not going to make the deadline, tho’. I can only quilt so much before my fingers start getting sore. I no longer have my quilting calluses built up like I used to.
