“that blog” (pic intensive)

5 01 2007

i wrote recently that my blog has become a stash blog rather than a knitting blog. well, i’ve been knitting. 😛 so there. butter’s perfect hat is still on hold (i don’t want to pick up stitches at the moment) and i have been working on my rainbow brite socks.

rainbow brite socks
chevron pattern from sensation knitted socks
started: december 29, 2006
needles: 2-2.5mm circular needles
notes: started toe-up with figure-8 casted on 12, increased to 66 and
(duh) did not center pattern on instep

i really really really really wanted the colors to turn out like what you see above…you know, rainbow-like….but instead:

pooling

i end up with syracuse and christmas colors….this is not what i was going for…and while it does not look terrible, i’m not satisfied with it. (of course, i love socks, so i will end up liking these in the end)

ANYWAY, i was saying that as of late, all i was posting was my stash enhancements. now, seeing that it is fiber friday and i have been knitting. i thought i would indulge…behold…my newest stash enhancements:

hmmm – even with the pooling, it’s kind of neat! 🙂 Love the new stash enhancements – lots of goodies there – you could do something with both the black and the STR that would be neat….

Nice new yarns, especially the CTH! My Rare Gem was “eh” too. I thought it was kind of nervy of them to pass off their “mistake” skeins like that. As I thought some of the other colourways were kind of “eh” too, I’m not renewing.

pretty, pretty yarn. And I agree with Stacey. From the photo provided, I like the pooling.
