More Experimenting

While browsing through my one and only (so far) Japanese stitch dictionary, I found a little all-over pattern that I thought might work with self striping yarn. As it turns out, not so much. The yarn pattern overpowers the texture of the stitch.

So after a couple of repeats, I eliminated the purls, which is better for this yarn, and I will probably transition to a 9 x 1 or 4 x 1 rib before I get to the heel.

I'll still like the socks a lot, because I love the colors. And I'll try the little pattern again with a solid or kettle dye.

Be back next week.
