I'm having a spring fling.
I wasn't sure I liked it at first. The colors and the pattern, well, I'm not sure if I really liked it. Especially in the beginning, it really looked like barf in a forest. The pictures I had seen of this colorway on ravelry and blogs had more yellow in it. This one is just dark green and brown with a couple of yellow blobs.
But since this is not the first time I tried knitting a pair of socks with this skein of yarn, I refused to frog it again. If I don't like it, well, someone will.
Trying it on however, really made the colors live. The pattern I've chosen is just great to knit. Interesting, but not too interesting. Easy to remember but entertaining. I think I'm starting to like these socks... but there's a problem. They are a bit too big for my legs. Guess either the yarn is too heavy, my legs are too thin or the pattern was written for bigger legs. Oh well, I'm just going to knit them and see who it will fit.
Yarn: Socks that Rock lightweight in Rocktober
Pattern: Knitty's Spring forward
