Here Fishy, Fishy (socks) in progress
With a ball of Crazy Zauberball, you never quite know what you'll get! The tops of the socks are quite matchy, matchy... which I really did not intend. The bottoms of the socks will be totally different from one another. I had to redo a bit of the second sock... the part where you decrease stitches after turning the heel. The yarn had a bit of a flaw where, for several feet, the yarn's thickness was two to three times thicker than the rest of the yarn. It made for a lumpy part in the sock and I worried it would make the sock uncomfortable to wear. I had set these socks aside for several days since un-knitting is no fun. Now that I have removed the five or six lumpy rows and cut out the offending part of the yarn, I am back on track... heading for the toe.
