I got the new Simply Sock Yarn color cards and started plotting. It was so hard to decide on three colors of yarn for these. I tried to narrow it down some by picking a light, a dark, and a medium. In the end, here is what I got: From the left, that’s Deep Sea (really a very dark greenish-blue), Chartreuse, and Turquoise. I thought the chartreuse looked more green when I was only looking at a small bit of yarn. When it sits next to the turquoise, though, it looks a lot more yellow. Maybe I should have picked Lime instead. Oh, well! Here’s how it’s going so far:
This sock is meant for Boy 2. It’s smallish, but it still has 56 stitches around, and with knitting and purling in 2 different colors, it’s not a very fast knit. My continental knitting is pretty rough – and don’t get me started on continental purling! This is a 22-round repeat, and some of the rounds have both knitting and purling with both colors. This is definitely a challenging pattern for me.
