Duelling pinatas

Duelling pinatas

I finally started knitting up this skein of Fleece Artist merino sock I bought last summer in Vancouver. Really, when I bought it, I knew that the vivid and extremely excited looking colorway (Pinata) was going to be an issue when selecting a pattern. I could have done plain vanilla socks like the CTH socks I did a while ago, but I really wanted something more entertaining to knit.

On the left, Jutta's socks from Folk Knitting in Estonia, on the right, Undulating Rib from Favorite Socks from Interweave Knits. I think I'm going to stick with the Jutta's socks, because they're basically vanilla with a lace detail going down the sides, so there isn't an overkill of investment in stitch details that won't really show.

And yes, in real life, the colours are actually louder than this.

Fleece Artist merino sock yarn is my FAVORITE. So squooshy, with such non-pooly colo[u]r changes.

Mmmmm. Lucky Canadians. It's hard to find here.
