Letting the yarn do its thing

I found a skein of sock yarn at the bottom of a shelf, and decided to knit it up.I thought the colors would be nice and spring-like, and expected either stripes or variegated results. 

It didn’t knit up as I’d pictured in my head. 

But I forged on, letting the crazy colors do their thing. 

Until I had one sock done. 

I started the second, not bothering to match up the repeats. 

And yesterday I finished the heel gusset on the second sock. This is to be a crazy pair of socks! Not for the faint of heart.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.

  1. Very nice 🙂 Most of my socks end up like that, unless I specifically match them
