I’ve been really struggling with my first colorwork socks, the Neptune High faux argyle pattern inspired by Veronica Mars. Sorry, no fancy linkage today since I’m writing this on my phone while a cat is in my lap.
I’m using the Philosopher’s two-handed, no-floats method of stranding, which I picked up quickly and have no problems with. (I’ve already added a link to the technique video in my sidebar; definitely recommended.) Decreasing in pattern, on the other hand, was a “10 rows forward, 5 rows back” exercise until just today, when all of a sudden I have most of a kneesock leg and all the decreases done.
So there’s just enough time to start another pair of stranded socks to qualify for the July Sock Knitters Anonymous challenge. I decided to cast on the socks that these were just practice for… Selbudeath, which I’m doing as pretty peachy-pink skulls on a black field. I just need to convince the white or orange cats to sit in my lap for the duration.
I have no idea what order the pictures will show up in, btw, but I’m confident you can tell the one from the other.
