No, I’m not going out in the dark by myself! In my yarn buying frenzy, I bought some ugly yarn. I’m sure someone loves this yarn but I’m not that someone. Not only do I find it big and scratchy for sock yarn but this is one ugly color. What was I thinking?
It’s as boring in real life as it is in the picture. It’s kinda pukey yellow to a washed out gray to a muddy mucky brown. A far cry from the brights I usually buy . . what was I thinking? 🙂
Anyway, while playing around on Ravelry today, I found a pattern that uses bigger needles (size 3) and is a toe up pattern, which I also am not crazy about.
So, on a Monday night, why not try a pattern I probably won’t like on a yarn I know I don’t like? I suppose if I gift these socks to anyone, they’ll know they’re not my best friend! Really . . I’m thinking I need some bulkier socks for my black rubber boots so . . here I go . . I’m going to cast on as soon as I publish this post. The worst that can happen is I’ll throw the whole mess in the trash and forget that I ever bought it!
