Koigu Inspired Sockyarn :: Take 2
June 30, 2011 § 1 Comment
Ahhhh Joy! I finished a pair of vanilla socks a day or so ago, and I’m really enjoying lounging in them at home. They are really a quirky colour I think it has to be said that I myself would probably the only one that loves … :)
Acouple of weeks ago in my “Koigu Inspired Sockyarn :: Take 1” post I experimented with dyeing some sockyarn. I wanted something like koigu dyed yarn, I think I might have to keep experimenting though, but I’m happy with the result for my first attempt … YAY!
I love random spots of colour in yarn, for me it makes the knitting journey with random spots of colour, worth the while!

Next time for my sock toe, instead of decreasing using Sl1, K1 psso, I might use K2tog … :) … as I like the look of K2tog.
Personal Critisism | Possibly Cast On 2-4 sts too many, still fits fine, could be alittle more snug, altho no problems with the leg staying up.
