My camera is definitely more on the dark/cold colour side these days. Maybe I am choosing the wrong motives for the training shots? (hear this.. 'training shots'! The Olympic spirit seems to rub off on me just by following the terrific reports in some blogs.)
Probably that's the explanation for the not-so-happy look of my feet on this picture. I can assure you, the colours are more vibrant in real life. Because some people asked: the yarn is Trekking XXL and the colourway is 'called' 110. As you can probably see, I do not mind irregular striping but running out of yarn. That's why I chose to knit up the 100g skein both, from center and outside, resulting in reversed colour sequels. - They are no nation colour socks ;-)
Next on the knitting list is of course the Sockapalooza project whereas I do not intend to finish them too soon. I couldn't stand not to be able to send them away for MONTHS! Nonetheless, I did some swatching...
Plain stockinette stitch is of course not what I am aiming for. My little knitting antennas almost unconsciously directed me into the direction of the Pomatomus pattern from knitty.com's winter issue. Struggling along I found out that many other knitters are not afraid of this pattern as well. Well, it looks gorgeous, even in my rather off-colour picture if I may say so.
Help me out.
I'll leave you with another demonstration of the training shots that seem to adjust my camera's colour preferences.
