Color for my Feet
This past weekend we took a city retreat for my husband’s birthday. Very luxurious, and let us ignore the long cold winter for a bit. Of course, I needed to take along knitting, and it needed to be a small, portable easy to work on project. Socks it was. I chose this yarn, that I believe I purchased from someone’s destash, but i can’t really remember where or when.
This is so incredibly beautiful, I was saving it for the right time/person. Unfortunately, this person stopped dyeing yarn a couple of years ago. When I was winding it up I fell even more in love with the colors. The dyer was Family Pendragon.
There was a last-minute urgent work item that I was tending to, and remembered everything but the waste yarn to do the tubular cast on. I tried it using the same yarn to no avail, and then tried just a regular cast on. The yarn screamed at me that it needed to be done perfectly, so I just played around with it, and when I got back home cast on with the waste yarn for the tubular cast on.
And I am so glad that I did. At the moment I am doing a twisted 1×1 ribbing for the cuff, not sure where I will go after that. I was thinking that the Monkey Socks by CookieA might be worth another go with this yarn. In the meantime, I am really glad that I started over. These will be so fun and bright.
