Since I'm on a roll, sock wise, I started one of the skeins of my Socks that Rock yarn, color - Lemongrass.I had never seen this yarn knit up, but if you're calling it "Socks that Rock" then I expect a little flash -- some zigs, some zags, a wild streak or two. In a moment of sheer insanity I chose a complicated Japanese cable pattern and started. You know how THE KNITTING RULES HANDBOOK states you should never work a busy pattern with variegated yarn? You did get your copy, right? Or have someone who is ever willing to share their thoughts on the rules? Well, I like to question authority too, but that's one rule with some merit. Starting over I decided to go with a simple waffle pattern -- 4 stitch repeat -- rounds 1 and 2 - knit, rounds 3 and 4 - k2, p2. Ahh, better -- now let's see what wild and crazy pattern develops! Four inches later -- hmmm, looks like one half of the leg is green, one half is yellow. In fact, because of the nubby texture it's looking like a half-shucked ear of corn. And so it went, with a minor blip or two, right down to the heel. OK, the stitch count changes, now we'll see some rock 'n roll action! And change it did. Into stripes. I felt like I'd punched the jukebox numbers for some mad, bad, early Stones and Puppy Love had played instead. (sorry, Donny) Ah well, it's a pleasant knitting yarn and working up quickly and I like the colors, so nothing is lost but a little excitement. And I still have another skein -- Cracked Canyon -- sounds fun, right? I just hope that darn Horse With No Name doesn't show up there.
