Asked and Answered

I made it this far:


After my last post, I ignored everyone's responses and decided to just finish the rest of the first sock since I was so close. I wanted to see how the pooling would play out and also test a cast off. Fine on both counts, so I started the second sock.

I convinced myself I was ok with the pooling on the foot knowing how the leg would turn out. All was well until I hit the heel increases. I don't know what it is about Knit Picks multi-colored yarn, but the pooling just deteriorates far too quickly for my liking. I'm generally ok with either wide fat stripes or tiny barely-even-stripes, but not both in the same sock. Plus the longer I looked at the foot, the more it looked like a dark brown sock that had been bleached.

I started a new pair of socks today with this yarn and I'm already several inches in. I feel much better about this. I don't know what will become of the brown yarn.
