I was not impressed with the sock pattern that came with my first STR sock kit.
I may try the pattern at a later date, but I felt for me it was too complicated.
The pattern that I used for these socks is the Fluted Bannister sock pattern, yarn is Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Socks That Rock, colorway: Monsoon. This yarn is their medium weight yarn and is VERY thick!!
It REALLY bugs me that the yarn pools the way it does!! I love the way the yarn stripes but just don't know how to assure that both socks will stripe rather than pool.
Oh Well....ANOTHER Finished Project!!!
This is a pattern that I got from Lis...of Life's A Stitch
I'm not sure when Lis wrote the pattern but I have had it for quite some time.
I wasn't able to get the colors to show up as they truly are (the yellowish green is in fact a celery green) here is a color swatch from the internet .....but I LOVE the way the pattern creates a reversible pattern!! Knit with Arte by Needful Yarns, Colorway: # 402.
Lis is very sweet to share her pattern, all you need to do is send her an EM and she will send a copy......be sure to check out her sidebar for a gallery of pics of the Herringbone!!! Lot's of pretty variations!!! I will be making this scarf again most definitely!!!
