An April Fool


I've tried every which way I know to get a matched pair of socks out of that Static yarn I had the disaster with last weekend. Everyone on Ravelry seems to be able to do it but I just can't see the color changes. 

I wound off two 50 gram balls of it and had The Mister help me roll it out all over the deck in the daylight to see if I could spot any color patterns. The colors are all so similar. This is the Terrarium colorway btw. 

The Mister thought I was crazy but I did spot something I could work with although nothing really matches up. He said why bother. He didn't mind a pair of socks that didn't match so I just gave up and will make these for him.

If all that wasn't foolish enough I thought it would be a good idea to cast them on two at time in the car while we went off for our grocery pick up. It's hard enough to do that all alone in a quiet corner but in a car with a yappy dog and a yappy Mister. Not good-but done.


  1. Yappy dog and Yappy Mister - too, too funny! Glad you got them going and glad you are not agonizing over making them match. Life is too short!

  2. Sometimes I overthink things too much, too! lol
    Have a good joke on the mister today!

  3. The rest should be a breeze, right??? LOL Glad you were able to make a good start.

  4. You made me laugh. I can just imagine you crawling around the deck with a magnifying glass trying to see the color changes like Sherlock Holmes! :-) I'm glad the cast on was successful. The hardest is behind you now and it will be smooth knitting ahead.

  5. Oh gee! That's a lot of work!
    I have a skein of Static (in Bee Keeper) but I'm not going to bother to try to make them match. I don't even worry about the Felicis matching.

  6. Breathe in, breathe out and enjoy knitting the socks.

  7. You made me laugh too. Rolling it around the deck. Whaddayanuts? You are so funny!!!
