On the Needles

Well, I'm still learning about yarn. The colors in the skeins looked nice. But the actual sock is a muddled blur of stripes. I find it very hard to visualize how the sock will look when using variegated yarn.

My next socks will be brighter than these. I'm also thinking of doing a variation on the classic "monkey socks!" Good grief, this sock business is beginning to scare me.

I think the socks look quite lovely! Whenever you have big hunks of color like Lorna's or Socks that Rock, you're going to get some stripiness. If you want more of a mix of color, you need short repeats like Koigu.
