Mellow Stripe


I drooled over this yarn (Red Heart Heart & Sole Mellow Stripe) for months before I finally bought it.  Now, I'm more excited about my plans for the leftovers than I am about my finished socks. They're pretty and I'll wear them, but I'm loving the idea of using those long colored sections as heels and toes on solid yellow socks.  I'll have to knit a pair from the solid yellow yarn first, so I'll have leftovers to work with.

But I can do that!

Oh they're lovely socks - I can see why you longed for the yarn! And yellow socks would be fantastic, especially if you use short row heels to keep the colour stripes :)

I am so jealous. I am trying so hard to learn to knit socks and they are kicking my butt. I am going to attend a class on Tuesday and decide if I will continue to try or just give up. After I spent $16.99 for the yarn I wonder why I even want to try. I would never spend that much on a pair of socks. It is amazing what we will do for our hobbies isn't it?
