{yarn along} New England Foliage

Another yarn that doesn't pool... I even ripped back three or four inches of the foot and added a bit of  ribbing in hopes that it might get some pooling going. No such luck.

All after I avoided casting on with this yarn for so long because I was so worried that it would pool! But the stripes do look nice. And I managed most of a sock in three days, even after ripping back, so I won't whine too much.

The book is Liver Let Die, a Clueless Cook Mystery. I'm only a third of the way in and I'm thinking the heroine might be just a touch too clueless... (Doesn't everyone know what foie gras is? Or at least not to order unidentified foods in fancy restaurants?)  But it's a fun read, and I'm anxious to see if things are headed where I think they're going. 

For more pretty knitting projects to drool over, check out On the Needles at Patchwork Times and Work in Progress Wednesdays at Tami's Amis.

I love your socks, very neat stripes!
Your book sounds interesting also, would you say it may be Book-Club reading material or possibly not?

Oooo. A non-pooling sock yarn. Sign me up! I wish there was a good way to tell whether a yarn was going to pool or not while it's in the hank. I'm terrible at determining that sort of thing.

Love the socks, but sorry they didn't pool. I read someplace by changing needle size helps....but I'm no expert LOL.

Not what you hoped for but you will have a very pretty sock when finished.

Very pretty, even though no pooling. I love the way the heel looks!
