Fish Bites



So, the Pomatomus socks haven't yet been the death of me, but they're a slow go. What you see here is half of the leg (well, if you don't include the cuff). Yep, half of the repeats of the first chart -- that's all I got after eight days. For a minute I seriously considered making these anklets, especially since I have to do it twice. But I am finding the challenge satisfying and the pattern is really cool.

I do like the Wildfoote yarn alot, though what you see here is the only place that the red bits have been pooling. All the red has fallen on needle #2, but as you see, it is migrating west (story of my life lately, hey?), and I think a diagonal stripe of the red would look pretty cool. Let's see if it cooperates with me. Tune in next week for the turning of the heel. Yeesh.

I LOVE the way this sock looks but I am totally intimidated by the pattern

Th red actually looks like cherry blossoms, to me. It looks like it was intended to create that pattern. Very cool!

i think it's cool that the pooling looks like a lightning bolt.

red? it looks like orange to me. but it's lovely. i'm seeing it as sort of a fat orange koi swimmingly slowly through a purplish-indigo pool. can't wait to see this socks when you finish!
