I thought the pinstripe effect would be neat surrounding the cat cameo and tried to carry the effect up the heel of the sock. However, I’m getting holes all along the pick up line and I’m not sure how to overcome this problem. As I was turning the heel, I began to think that I probably should have knitted the toe and heel in one color. Now, I’m sure I should have at least knitted the heel in one color.
So, I’m taking a deep breath and putting these aside for a little while. These still might end up ripped out and forgotten but I’m going to see if there might be an easy solution to the holes problem. But on the other hand, I’m not loving this color combo… which means I’m not really enjoying knitting this sock. Initially, the colors seemed retro to me with the brown and harvest gold. But, now, they just remind me of an over-ripe banana. 😦
