Speaking of the striping, I thought they striped really badly, more in a ragged spiral pattern. I tried varying the stitch counts several times before finally going with a 64-stitch sock. I have seen other socks made with this yarn, and the stripes were much cleaner. There's either a secret to it, or I got a bad skein. Plus the sock broke one of my favorite DPNs.
Those Yarn Pirate fans out there, tell me--what is going on with these socks?
Obviously I am not the hugest fan of these socks. I am just ast the cuff on the second one, doing them Magic Loop style, just for fun. Next up? A pair of Embossed Leaves in this ice-blue Koigu. An excellent incentive to get the Clementine socks done ASAP.
