Last week I started knitting the first of a pair of mismatch socks – the (Ravelry link) Stationery Set from Yarn Enabler. I bought this yarn a couple years ago, and I’m glad I did, as I don’t know that the dyer is still in business, though here is the link to her site anyway.
I started with the “paper” yarn, and am just doing my usual plain toe up sock. The one thing I’m doing different is doing these one at a time, which is odd for me. Boy, single socks go really quickly! Also, I’m going to use up all my yarn from this set, which I don’t normally do. I just knit until it’s long “enough” and I’m bored of it 🙂
The other sock will be a pencil 🙂 Here is the yarn, and also if you follow the Rav link above, you will see examples of the mismatch sets.
The yarn for the toe starts black and then turns light brown, like the tip of a sharpened pencil. Then the foot and leg are yellow, and the top of the sock is silver then pink. Love this set! Also because this one is plain knitting, it is moving along pretty well. Maybe I can polish this one off this week? Who knows!
