Oh, There Are These, Too.

I didn't knit or blog much for most of last summer, fall and the beginning of winter. I spent a lot time reading (and I still am reading) and a lot of time catching up on media—movies & TV show—with my Google Chrome and Netflix.

But I did get some knitting done --some of it has been frogged—I wasn't happy with the results.

These socks didn't get frogged—but they are also a bit of disappointment.

The yarn is Paton's Kroy—in a color way called Rainbow--(these are not rainbow colors!) and some left over grey. I needed the grey because the ruffle used up way more yarn than I realized.

And well, the ruffle doesn't really work, does it? Kimberly (of my Tuesday knitting group) thought they would be great boot socks—and the ruffle would look good as a boot topper—but I hate boots, and rarely wear them (just twice this past winter with all the snow we had.)

I love to experiment with socks—and every once in a while I come up with a great design. And then again, every once in a while, a dud.
