The Handmade Sock Society third pattern, Cliff Walk, is beautiful. But the yarn I chose is not working with this pattern.
Plus I’m not enjoying the feel of the yarn while knitting, nor the finished part so far. It’s coarse and not soft. Maybe that’s due to the cotton content. I don’t know.
But I DO know that I will begin anew with a different yarn. My old stand-by: Knit Picks Stroll. Midnight Heather is a rich deep blue. (I’d rather use a tonal but I don’t have any in my stash that I’m willing to use for socks. The yardage for those yarns is enough for some shawls and I’d hate to use some and not have enough for later.)
I only have 56 grams in this dye lot and will need about 70-80 grams. I might use black for the cuffs, heels, and toes…
…or dye some Knit Picks Stroll Bare that I do have in my stash.
