Unstuck


I started these socks on vacation in July and when I got half way through turning the heel.... I realized that they had spliced the yarn and in doing that skipped three of the color repeats. I was so disgusted that I stuffed them in my bag and punished them by ignoring them completely. Well, I started to feel sorry for my poor socks and this weekend while David and I were in Monterey I tore out the half of a heel and joined in a section on yarn from another color repeat. I actually knit a whole round with both the old yarn and the new yarn to make sure that it wold not wear a whole at the join. I an happy with the method and I don't feel a bump at all where I was knitting with two yarns.
