In Case You Were Wondering


1. Yes, this is the only sock (note singular) that I have finished since March 1. (Sad.)
2. Yes, it is hard to photograph the sole of your own foot.
3. That is pooling.

Well, that about covers it! I still thinks it's a lovely sock.

Yowza! Didn't know you were a contortionist, too! ;-) Is that Pansy Sock Garden I see? I've got some here that wants to be Wyverns, but I'm not much for toe-up socks. We'll see. As for the pooling, it's too bad (IMHO) that all that pretty yellow ended up on the sole! Super secret energy pool?

Take care!

Wow.

That's crazy!

That's like the borg of pooling! But I think any handknit sock is a pretty sock, pooling or no!

Oh yes, that is pooling. Still a pretty sock though.

Wow! Yours pooled so much more than mine! I like it though. Pooling doesn't really bother me.

It's amazing how socks turn out sometimes. I quite like it! But of course, what will sock number 2 look like?

how do you avoid pooling? Is the striping yarn choice?

I happen to think that's rather awesome. What are the chances you can achieve the same thing on the second sock?

How funny that it pooled right on the sole like that. I almost looks like you walked in bleach. LOL But if you're gonna have a "big pool", the bottom of the foot would be the place. In "normal" life no one will see it!

You need a tripod ;o)

Pooling can be beautiful - at least that's what I tell myself...

It's most definitely a "one of a kind" sock. In my experience, you'll never be able to make another one just like it..........but, then, again, I am the master of ugly sockies.. aka: The queen of pool......

Whoa. Looks like you stepped in something! I bet on your second sock the pool will end up on the top! :)

Wow--well, at least it's on the bottom. How do you get that lucky? And I'm afraid for acornbud & Jenny's predictions that it will wind up on the topside of the 2nd sock. . . :(

From your crazy sole photo angle, the pool does look a little like a heart, though--which would be neato! :)

i love how the bottome of the foot came out. now the sad thing is that the next sock probably won't come out like that. that's why i hate veriagated yarn. this little sweater dealy thing i'm making up now (on my blog) is the last i'm gona do with it.

That effect makes me think of skipping stones; How when the stone first skips it causes a circular ripple to form? Kinda like that only you have a golden ripple :)**CV oh and I picked up my sigur ros ticket today

I think your sock is gorgeous!! I don't know if it makes me weird (like there isn't a whole host of other things that qualify me for that position ;-)), but I really like pooling in socks. I think it's one of those characteristics that make handknit socks so unique. That yellow looks particularly cool, too. I haven't finished a pair of socks since February, either. You've had SO much going on, though, especially with the whole quarantine strep situation. I'm always impressed with how many FO's you manage to make in spite of all that you have going on. I've been meaning to email you- thank you so much for all your support and good wishes this past week- it really meant a lot to me. BTW, I just read your last post, and I have to tell you, the knitting gnome imagery elicited quite the demented laugh from me! Take care, Laura! :-)

that's pretty funny.

But it's such COOL pooling, like a little secret spot of color where only you will know about it. I think it looks great.

Me likey, pooling or no pooling. Will it have a mate?

At least you got the purple on the top - I always end up with my least favorite color showing.

Fortunate pooling...
