On my needles today:
Using 2.25 mm needles, I cast on 60 stitches. After finishing the ribbing, there’s obviously diagonal striping. Sometimes the ribbing can be striped, but just because of the extra yarn used up with the ribbing stitch, the yarn will pool once the stockinette begins in the leg of the sock, as what happened here. Other times, the diagonal striping pretty much continues, as what happened here. In an effort to hopefully spur a little pooling, after the ribbing, I added 4 stitches so I am not knitting with 64 stitches instead of 60 stitches. It’s hard to tell if I’m going to get pooling or if I’ve just reversed the direction of the stripes. In either event, the yarn is gorgeous and no matter how it turns out, I’m going to love these socks.
