Edited Socks

I succumbed to the call of the swap yarn . . .



. . . but it might look a little different than you expect.



Where's the white, the faux Fair Isle sections? I edited them out!



Mwahaha. Hey yarn, I'm the boss. In total there were 12 sections cut out. This meant I had around 24 ends (instead of 2) to weave in but I took care of that as I worked down the sock so it wasn't a big annoyance. Do try this at home: The yarn was knit at 10 sts/in on size 0 needles, 78 sts cast on. My shoe size is 7.5 (about 9.25"). There were 3 or 4 sections of color left over so I could've added about 1.5" to the leg or foot.

Oh that sock looks super! My brain said right away, hey, where are the stupid black and white areas?! Neat idea, I do not know whey they add those areas to most every sock yarn, they are really not called for LOL...

What a great idea! It's so interesting to see what the socks look like without the fake Fair Isle accents. Way to go, I give two thumbs up to bossing around your knitting! Weaving in the extra ends, well, you just have to deal with it, I guess, to make those interesting socks. I will never look at self-patterning sock yarn the same way again: I will now always imagine what it will look like sans this portion or that one - thanks!

Grumperina already said everything I was planning to say, so I'll just say "ditto."
