Self-striping socks for myself


Socks in the grass, originally uploaded by casystotyle.

Most recent FO. Tried to sharpen the pic since it was a little blurry, but I don’t know if that just made it weird looking or not. I used some Regia Jaquard self striping yarn. I was pretty fun and rewarding so see knew color after color appearing. It was a boring ol’ stockinette sock so the colors kept my spirit up. I was kinda anal about the stripes matching up. When one was behind I changed my tension to catch them up, and it seemed to work out okay. I really like the KnitPicks sock pattern for two-at-a-time, toe up magic loop with a heel flap. What more could I want in a sock pattern? I love using almost every last scrap of the yarn. I am thinking I will try to adapt all future sock patterns to use this method. A worthy challenge.
