lovin' the cheapie yarn!

so, that yarn ... i cast on. right now, i will say i ♥ love ♥ it.

i simply find it interesting. first of all, i was blown away by the color saturation. the colors are a bit "unnatural" ... and so are the fibers. 

the yarn is 93% acrylic and 7% PBT. i asked myself, what is PBT ?! i found the answer here.

i thought i would knit a plain vanilla sock (you know, the kind you can knit in the dark, because you've knit it 100 times already). 

but, it is "unusual construction" month over at sock knitters anonymous, and i felt this yarn would be awesome for the pattern stripe tease (rav link).

so, here we go ....

i know the sock looks kinda not like  a sock. in this pattern, you start first with the cuff, knitted in the round. and then, the rest of the sock until the toe, is knitted in strips.

i have the gist in my head, and have somewhat abandoned the pattern. and i hope it fits =)
