wonky striping

October 15, 2008 § 1 Comment


So the question is, why do they stripe differently? Is it where on the yarn I started each sock? Or, is it because it is mill end discount yarn and there are some inconsistencies in the hand dye? I’m secretly hoping it is a defect because that would mean I can’t do anything about it to fix it and wouldn’t be compeled to take out the second sock and start over.  The yarn is a beautiful variety of Socks that Rock- Blue Moon Fiber Arts, superwash merino/ lightweight.

We are taking off today for a little vacation (yea!) at a cabin in the forest. I’m brigning a basket of yarn and a few books. There is hiking and mushrooming around but it may start raining so I plan to be prepared.

Before I go I have a movie recommendation, The Fall. You should rent it, it’s beautiful.

    It must be an inconsistency in the dye because stripe is twice as thick on one sock so the length of yarn… oh I don’t know.

    I was in Macys last night and noticed a ton of knit dresses, some knit on super big needles (obviously all machine made but you know what I mean). I wonder if I should try one just making a sweater super long. The problem is I’d probably be bored with it by the time I was done and not want to wear it. I started a new scarf this week (I haven’t made one in 9+ years) with a leaf pattern so it’s taking a while especially since I’m using #2 needles. I had started a sweater with the yarn but got twisted on the circular needles so it turned into a mobius strip. Damn those nylon circular needles-so twisty!
