I had a bad case of sock startitis over the weekend. I had bought this skein of Static a while back and was feeling a little guilty about having no man socks in the gift box yet this year so I thought I'd cast on a pair using this.
I was feeling pretty smug about them. In fact I went online and thought I'd buy a few more skeins in man sock colors because I really liked the feel and the look of it. That's when I discovered to my horror that this is not just some randomly dyed yarn. It's patterned and they are actually matchy matchy. That's just what I didn't want. I wanted a mindless cast on for a change. Needless to say they are now unraveled and I'm going to have to make the time to figure out how to make this mish mash match because that's just how I roll. Sigh.
If that's not bad enough, I also cast on the latest Felici two at a timers only to discover that although they are the very same dye lot one pair is a lot more vivid than the other. It's hard to see it in the photo but trust be there is a noticeable difference.
My weekend sock adventures were a bust but I did make some darn good bread. I guess you can't win'em all.
