My knitting hasn’t been working out, lately. It’s not that I haven’t been knitting, it’s just that my projects haven’t been turning out the way I want them to. The choices I’ve been making matching patterns to yarn haven’t been the best so I’ve gotten a little bit discouraged.
When this happens the first thing I do is scurry around my apartment plucking various yarns from the stash and casting on a bunch of projects in a panic. Then, when realization sets in that nothing I’ve cast on is really right, I cast on a pair of socks and work away at them while trying to figure out what to knit.
This pair of socks was knit using Patons Kroy FX yarn. This yarn has a really cool marled gradient effect. It’s made up of four plys, each of them slowly changing colours, giving the yarn a striped effect. It’s pretty random so you can’t really predict what colour is going to come next.
These socks were knit in my usual way – toe-up, magic loop, one at a time tubes with an afterthought heel.
