I looked at past exams like the one I will take next Saturday(!) with the one other grad student who will be taking it with me and we were both pleasantly surprised by what we saw. It's totally doable. It has been a load off. I'll stop talking about it obsessively very soon. ;) Thanks for putting up with me!

3-D Socks

Pattern: Mad Color Weave by Tina Lorin
Yarn: Fangrrl Fiber Arts Socket in In the Third Dimension
Needles: US 1

I'll be honest: I kind of hated the way this pattern was written (just a bunch of minor things you'd never see in professional patterns), but the socks are pretty great. I'm still not sure the pattern was the best solution for this colorway, but it's not bad. What do you think? The motif was fun and easily memorized, so I flew through these guys pretty fast two-at-a-time.

I realize the socks are different colors, but I think it was sort of intentional. I haven't had the chance to ask the dyer yet, but based on the colorway name, I think it's intentional. In 3-D glasses, one lens is red and the other is blue, right? Ta-Da! Hence the project name. :)

I think I'm done with socks for a while (except for the super slow-going At the Cauldron's Edge). I've made a lot of them in the last few months and they aren't my favorite to begin with. Besides, spring and summer are coming and, if you're anything like me, you don't wear socks at all, right?

I just posted about my recent stash acquisitions, but yesterday I added even more! I'll share a couple of those pretties with you Monday. I'm super excited about them and about starting a million projects with them all at the same time the week after. :D

Spring is kind of here. What do you have on the needles? Spring knitting plans?

  1. It seems like that was totally intentional on the dyers part. Pretty cool socks!

    1. I think so too. She's pretty clever like that. :)

  2. Pretty socks. They look like much fun. But I have to admit I was wondering why they were different colors before I read your explanation.


Thank you for reading and commenting! I love to hear what's on your mind!
