The koigu version of the mystery sock didn’t really work out — the yarn was much too busy for the pattern. So I frogged and started again with some KnitPicks kettle-dyed sock yarn in gold. I’ve never worked with KnitPicks sock yarn before, but so far, I’m liking the yarn. And not only because of the price: it’s soft and seems quite sproingy. If that’s a description.
Anyhoo. The pattern is shaping up nicely in the new yarn. Because of my tight knitting troubles and an experiment with US1.5/2.5mm needles, I cast on for the 72-stitch version despite my preference for the 64-stitch cable pattern. Le sigh. Unfortunately, I also prefer socks that fit.
In other news, my Anise cardi [ravel it] is blocked and drying.
I’m off on a button hunt this afternoon. Yay for fall and cardigans!
