i certainly have a ton and a half of yarn in stash, but it's always the freshest yarn that entices me ....
such as, this trekking 107. all i knew was that i needed a mindless project. no guessing of fit, no trying to decide on technique, no trying to figure out a clever stitch pattern. i just needed too knit 'round and 'round, and let the yarn make the sock pretty.
and pretty it is ... this is the first time i've knitted with trekking, and i love how all the plies change colors.
the pattern is just my tried and true basic ... size 1 dpns, 72 sts, tubular cast on, 2x2 rib, plain jane leg, slipped stitched heelflap, and standard toe decreased and kitchner stitched.
