here is my dilemma: i love the colors in this yarn. but in a self striping sock? hmmm, maybe not so much. i will finish this pair and also wear it, but that will be most likely the first and only pair of self stripping socks i will ever own. so far i did a few variegated socks, and i like them . but i realised working on this pair, that i actually love solid & semi solid socks. so what did i do? i bought some lovely yarn from mama blue. her colors are sooo beautiful. i will put up pictures as soon as it arrives. i am knitting at the moment a little vest for my girl on some of her yarn, and i absolutely love it.
