Fair Isle socks--Memorial Day Weekend
I don't want to turn this into a sock knitting blog, but that is what I've been doing, mostly. This is the latest pair--using a fair isle pattern and several yarns from my stash, plus one skein of white yarn donated by my friend Margie. I did a lot of ripping on these socks, because the colors didn't always knit up the way they looked like they would in the skein--the main problem was not enough contrast. But persistence paid off and I have another nice pair of socks.
