A UniZebraCorn Tube

Finally got a vanity shot of my first UniZebraCorn sock tube before I lost the sunlight!

The pooling really played out nicely. The rainbow is subtle and the zebra black/white breaks up the crazy very well. I haven’t weighed this tube yet but I have a generous ball of yarn left. I am still pondering on the yarn choice for the heel. Could do black or I could just use this same self-striping yarn.

I think I will finish the second tube and decide how I feel in that moment. Happy Knitting!!

Cast On: In The Light, Pink Version

As promised after finishing my green In The Light I promptly put a third one on the needles. This will be my pink version and I already can’t put it down.

I chose to go back to the fringed version for this one. I’m starting with a white skein with rainbow speckles from Black Trillium Fibers and then will progress to a Knitted Witt Victory sock skein in pink with rainbow sprinkles and finish up with a OOAK skein from KirbyWirby.

This bright and pink yarn is making feel more spring-like and peppy. I am enjoying the process of this pattern but I think in this case I really want the finished thing more!

Happy Knitting!!

WIP Wednesday: Travel Vanilla Socks

My Travel Vanilla Socks were very handy at my work conference. (Side note….I saw a fellow attendee doing two handed stranded colorwork with a chart….I was in awe. She was still totally listening and participating. Legitimately awesome.)

I found myself picking them up very often at my conference. So in the span of three days I made the above progress. I’m pretty happy with a good chunk of two socks cranked out.

I also started contemplating how I was going to finish these socks. I don’t normally work cuff down so I don’t have a “favorite” cuff down heel. I recently acquired some plain grey Heritage sock yarn in my stash and I’m considering contrast toes and afterthought heels. So I’m thinking about just cranking these tubes until I get to the length I want and finish toes in grey. I think I’ll just see how my tubes turn out!

Happy Knitting!!
