Hmmmm . . .

What does this:



have in common with this:


???????????????????

Well, together they make up this:



Pretty drastic example of sock yarn gone potentially bad.

The cuff seems to be striping in this mock cable stitch pattern I'm using.

But when I got to the stockinette foot, forget it! It's pooling, BIG time!

I suppose it might drive some folks crazy.

I've decided I like it.

Also, I have entered the extremely tedious "ruffle" section of my second Citron shawlette and it occurs to me I haven't shown you the color. It's blue. BRIGHT blue.



Apparently I don't have too many problems knitting the shawlettes. It's the blocking that is tripping me up. (So far there are two in the queue ahead of this one!)

Happy Knitting!

I like the sock foot. It's kinda funky. :)

Jenn is right! That is one funky sock! I like it!
I thought maybe the first picture was a sweater and you were desperate for yarn and unraveled it to knit the item in the next pic.

I love that pooling!

I'm so glad you like the pooling. It's no fun to rip out a sock you've put a lot of time into because the pooling is driving you crazy!

Pooling is such a bugger. Dang it. But good for you for liking it anyway. :)
