So it ends up that knitting with self-striping yarn is a lot of fun, and very addicting! I don’t know why it took me so long to give it a try!
Pattern: socks over 68 stitches with an OMG heel. The instructions were perfect, and the heel was really fun to knit, too, though it strikes me as a little bit more shallow than I’m used to. These are going to my grandma, and I’ll see what she thinks (though she typically says everything fits “perfectly,” regardless of the true fit).
Needles: US 1 dpns (Susan Bates, my favorite!). My gauge with this yarn and needles is about 34 stitches/4″.
I’m in the thick of knitting Christmas balls right now, and I think after that I’ll be tackling a few UFOs and a poncho for Sonya, but I can see more self-striping socks in my future a bit later on, for sure!5 likes
