Taken For Granted
OK, I will get off my soap box and back to the knitting. I had decided to make the leg shorter since I was thinking that I did not have enough yarn to finish the socks and I remembered what happened the last time. Two things happened that I was not expecting:
1. I didn't run out, not even close
2. I really didn't like how the striping yarn changed color right at the toe as I was grafting the toe.
The toe appears to have a light grey line down the front.......at this point, I am not disturbed enough to unravel and cut and try again. I am almost over it (almost). My next thought is, I have never made socks with self striping yarn, do you search thru the next ball until you get the stripes to match? Or do you just go fancy free and totally non matching?
