This is where I am before heading to take the yahoos to the Y.
I am just not sure about this, folks.
On the one hand, they’re fine. It’s an impressive pattern, and it looks pretty good, but it doesn’t look perfect. I don’t feel so good about turning in something for the fair that I don’t think is perfect. Last year’s socks had zero visible flaws, and only 2 mistakes in the whole mess, which were sufficiently fudged so that they were not noticeable.
These socks could look perfect once they’re done and blocked. I just don’t know. It’s hard to imagine though, and I’m just not confident enough in my fair isle skills. (Not to mention the fact that the designer laughed in the face of The Rules that clearly state no color should be carried across the back for the distances she’s called for.)
I have to run out, and these are in a tender spot for transport. So I’m bringing another pattern and another yarn, and I’m going to see how far I get on a completely different sock pattern.
I’m just not sure about these…
