Frankensocks continued
bglynn
Last night when I was grizzling on the couch, tired and cranky, all I could handle was a project that included the knit stitch and the knit stitch only. The only one I could find was my Frankensocks, so I worked on them furiously, hoping to magically transfer my bad mood down the needles and away from me.

This morning when I looked at what I'd done, I was amazed:



The top part of the socks are done with the same yarn, then I started spiralling in different yarns to make it more interesting. The yarns are the same, but because they started at different places in the repeat the resulting look is completely different - one has come out in lots of fake fair isle and the other one has come out in single stripes. Lots of fun! I actually wish I'd been spiralling the whole way, not just the after the first 5cm, but I can't wait to see how the rest of the sock looks. It's looks different and crazy with almost no more effort than a standard pair of socks...my favourite type of pattern!

BLOGTOBERFEST UPDATE: 26 down, 5 to go.
