The Sockapaloooza socks are troubling me this time. My pal wants something fun.
I was dead sure about the yarn (LL Irving Park) first, but couldn't find a suitable pattern. Lots of you commented on my attempt on the challenging Pomatomi ages ago. Thank you very much!
The result: this yarn and this pattern = big no no! What is a clever girl to do? No, don't abandon the pattern (which really has proven to be an ordeal) and knit something fun with the beauteous Lorna's Laces Irving Park. But: change the yarn! [*smite my forhead*] I casted on with Lanett's supersoft merino ull in a stunning red and everything looks fine. Don't you agree?
Because it's still Project Spectrum's red month (jaja, and pink, I know, can't we just forget that part?) and sunshine I will offer another picture.
I'm in love with this sock!
However, I cannot stop pondering about it being a rather austere beauty than actually shouting something fun!
Somehow the collage gives me the creeps because it looks so chaotic and unprofessional. But then, that's me...
Lastly, a glimpse of the flags (= embassies or representations) I pass by on the short walk from my work place to the bus station. The Japanese unfortunately do not flag (don't they know it's Project Spectrum's red months!?) and the Chinese are a bit out of the way. I wouldn't boast with the global scope of my little world if it wouldn't be for the connection to the next post, which is dedicated to another pair of socks.
