Once I decided to put my Entrelac Socks aside, I eagerly picked up my Spring Twists socks.
I truly love working with this yarn, as it is so spectacularly luscious and agreeable.
The only trouble is, I really don’t like how it looks in this pattern. Something about the vague striping of the variegation or the way the traveling stitches dissipate in softness… it just isn’t working the way I’d hoped.
So I decided to try a different yarn, a 100% mercerized cotton which is not actually intended for sock-knitting. This is Jager Siena 4-ply, and I think it’s going to work perfectly.
The tight twist of the firmer yarn makes the traveling stitches and ribbing pop more, and the solid color proves much less distracting. Which is to say nothing of how head over heels in love I am with this slightly shiny sage green.
I’m feeling a lot better and looking forward to how these socks turn out.
