One more pair of Dorothy’s Slipped-Stitch Spiral Knit socks using three different balls of yarn.
I managed to get three pairs of socks out of the Trekking yarn and I still have some left over. I needed ball number two of two balls of the Soles & More to complete the second sock in this pair and have plenty leftover for another pair. One ball of the Reggio was plenty for this pattern. I still have another one.
I love this pattern. (Can you tell?!) It’s interesting to see how the colors play with each other and when each color or pattern changes. Plus I’m using up yarn that I bought years ago thinking I would like the colors/patterning but realizing that that wasn’t the case.
The Reggio was self-striping and the colors were not equally divided stripes so one sock has more red than the other. I suppose I could have cut the yarn when I started the heel so the red would be more dominant on the foot but since the stripes and patterns weren’t going to match up anyway, I decided not to change it. Weaving in another loose end was also a factor.
I haven’t done much knitting on the sleeveless top I was working on but I did make another pair of socks using Dorothy’s Slipped-Stitch-Spiral sock pattern. This was the same XXL Trekking plus a different colorway of another bargain (97 cent) sock yarn. It was self-striping as opposed to self-patterning.
I’m loving this pattern so much that I started a third pair using three different balls of yarn! Stay tuned for those…
The Slipped-Stitch Spiral Knitted socks are finally finished.
When I knit another pair using this wonderful sock pattern, I will make the leg another inch or so longer. Just my personal preference.
