Anyone remember this sweater that I recycled, and was going to become a different sweater but instead became an epic failure? (in my defense, I had no clue what I was doing and didn't follow a pattern. Yeah. I know. lol).
This soft fuzzy angora blend yarn has been sitting in my stash since almost the conception of my blog and now it's being it's being reincarnated a second time. This time: socks! I cast on my Red Dwarf Socks last weekend and have only had time (or energy) to do a few rows each night. The repeat pattern is super easy to remember and I love that the pattern is written for toe up on two circular needles, since that's my preferred sock method thus far. I'll still have to figure out how to alter patterns to be able to do them that way if they aren't written from the toe up. Can't be that hard, can it? hehe
Here's what sock 1 looks like so far:
The pattern in this yarn isn't as pronounced as in the pattern's picture, but I still think it makes a pretty little detail. I don't think I'm going to do the pattern again on the back of the socks once I'm up on the leg as the pattern calls for. I'm thinking instead I'll just do ribbing around the back for a better fit because the yarn doesn't have a lot of elasticity.
