Here are the last six pairs of socks I’ve knit for myself:
They are nice socks and they fit well. Two thirds of them are blue. And rather the same blue at that.
Many of my readers know that I tend to knit socks non-sequentially. I’ll knit two separate single socks before knitting either second. So here’s two of my single socks:
Apparently, my personal sock “color story” is blue with some green. Blue is not my favorite color. I like blue well enough; it’s nice and versatile. But I’m in a blue rut, and now I’m digging my way out:
Embossed Leaves–what a wonderful pattern! DIC Smooshy in Gothic Rose–what a wonderful non-blue color! Second sock is already OTN–in fact I’m through the gusset decreases, contrary to the photo.
Vesper Sock Club Yarn from Knitterly Things in Damsel. Turquoise (which a shopkeeper in London told me to pronounce tur-kwaaaahhhzz) doesn’t count as blue. It’s fun! It’s stripey! No blue! The pattern is chevron welt from Sensational Knitted Socks.
Toe Jamz by Happy Hands Yarn in Eleanor Rigby. That’s purple–not blue! I’m serious. NOT BLUE. Another pair of Monkey socks. Nice yarn. Good dye job–intense color and good transitions.
I’m going to have to knit the second navy tweed sock some day. But not today.
