One Down, One to Go!

I finished my first seriously insane sock yesterday!  I realized when I put it on the sock blocker, the hand dyed yarn, worked in the short rows looks like psychedelic wood grain.  Kind of.  If you stand back and squint.  Maybe you have to be uncaffeinated too.

Anyway, one of them is finished and I’ve worked the ribbing to start the second one.  I’m kind of wondering what this would look like in an actual self striping yarn (like the pattern was written for).  I do have some self striping sock yarns in my stash.  Maybe I’ll give this a try again with one of those.  This pattern is easy to work, but you have to pay attention and watch for the wraps, so no autopilot knitting.  It’s not difficult at all, it’s just a matter of paying attention.

It turned out nice! I've had that pattern in my favorites for quite some time...maybe I should make it...
