During my beginning of January make-all-the-things frenzy I decided I needed a new pair of mittens. I wanted to knit something really basic, no pattern required, no pattern writing required and my old Noro mitts were developing a hole. I wanted something soft and funky coloured. Some crazy hand dyed variegated thing. Over at Shall We Knit I found this, Opus 1 by Zitron.
Really soft, barely spun, nice and thick, good colours, yup this should do. I wound it up right away. Notice anything?
Yeah, hi stripes! I don’t remember seeing “self striping” on the label. Good thing it’s such nice yarn or I might have to be disappointed.
On the new sock design front: the first test sock is finished, yay! I’m loving how wiggly it looks when it’s unstretched.
I’m trying something different on the second sock, not sure yet if it’s really working. Stay tuned!
