Batts in my Belfry
Oh my goodness. These are just the most awful looking things. I take full responsibility for the awfulness as I was in complete charge of this project from sheep to sock. I washed the fleece, dyed the wool, carded the batts, spun it and then knit the ugliest mismatched foot coverings on the planet. My first attempt to control the pattern in a self striping project was a TOTAL bust and I am not sure where it went so horribly wrong. It just seems to me that if you break apart the batts in equal sections, spin them in sequence and them ply them together in the same sequence that you would end up with large blocks of solid colors-somewhere. Not.
