I finished my first pair of Pride socks and I LOVE THEM!
They turned out slightly more mismatched than I expected (although they’re not actually different shapes – the right side just wouldn’t lie flat), but I think the similarities are enough to tie them together as a pair. Plus they’re comfy and soooo toasty.
There’s still plenty of month left so I made a start on the second lot of yarn I was considering.
These are not going so well.
Curse you, accidental colour pooling.
The yarn did look fairly rainbow-y in the skein, but now they feel more like Hogwarts Houses socks.
Not that I’m against Hogwarts socks, but I was really aiming for a more Pride-y look.
I suppose the spiral stripes look kind of cool, so it’s not really a disaster. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that the other sock turns out the same so at least I have a matching pair of not-quite-rainbow socks.
Once this pair is finished that’ll be me out of rainbow-like yarn so I shall finally start my first Rose City Rollers. I’m pretty excited!
