happy accidents

i've restarted the sock, because .... i want this sock, and, it's also 'avoidance behavior' in regards to my other knitting. i used some other sock yarn to crochet a long chain, and then i picked up my cast on loops through the bumps on the back of the chain. as i started knitting, the fabric started twisting and turning all over the needle -- it looks very much like corkscrew fringe, and, i love the contrast yarn on the edge. i need to file this into my mental library of pretty knitted things, ideas for later projects. it sort of reminds me of rowan's 'ribbon twist'. by the way, have you seen this?


rowan's ribbon twist, and the color is called rhumba. i think it's soooooo pretty!
