I have just finished a sock made from Stroll yarn from KnitPicks. I have made several pair of socks from this kind of yarn and have liked it but this time I was pretty disappointed. There were 3 different areas where the yarn was pieced-never happened before with this brand of yarn. I have not started the second sock and hope I don't find the same. I will send a message to the company to let them know what I experienced.
The color is Sunset Multi but I call it Butterscotch. Parts of the sock look striped and part looks solid. If you look carefully at the solid part, it is actually stripped but the colors don't vary enough to be noticeable.
I also started a new pair of socks that will be a birthday gift for one of my quilting buddies. She loves green and wears lots of neutrals. I think this HULK yarn from www.sarahbrowndesign.com is perfect for her.
I tried adding a pattern to the leg area but it did not show enough to be worth the extra time. I am really
happy with the way this one is coming out. I like the color randomly dispersed.
