Pink must be my new favorite color! I just finished these pink socks and the next pair I started has pink also. Normally I’m not much on pink for myself but I do love the color. Most hand dyed sock yarn is intended to either be a tone on tone type yarn or stripe. I’ve heard other knitters complaining about sock yarn “pooling” but I’d never had it happen til these socks.
On the sock on the left, once I finished the heel, I decreased an extra stitch or two just to see if I could get a stripe and I kinda did. I don’t mind the pooling in this but I’ve seen some that was downright ugly! This is ShibuiKnits Sock yarn . . this color to be exact, even though my socks look more brown than green in the picture. I liked working with this yarn a lot and will definitely order more of it . . some day!
They are kinda funny looking though, aren’t they?
