Taming the Tiger


You know how the call of the variegated sock yarn can sometimes be too much to resist. It looks so enticing on the skein but knitted up, a horrible mess of pooling and flashing. What I decided to do was to tame that wild beast by combining it with a solid neutral. Twice.

What about jogless stripes, you ask? Two much of a fuss, in my opinion. Just do a purl column on each side seam and you’ll never know where the color change is.
