Colorwork – real and cheater

image

I jumped right into another pair of socks when I finished the striped ones. This is really old Berroco Sox yarn from the stash, in plain stockinette, on US 1s with 72 stitches around. I couldn’t find a good color repeat in the skeins so the socks don’t quite match. This bothers me a little bit, but I’m forging on.

I’m also working on a double knit, reversible hat. Now, there’s some colorwork! It’s slow, but I think the end result will totally be worth it.

  1. Ooh, that hat looks complicated 🙂 And the socks look like one is the opposite colour repeats of the other one, which you’re going to get if you do one sock from the inside of the ball and the second from the outside 🙂
