When I start working on the gusset the colors start clumping together in a more interesting way and the heels striped as the colors stacked up in the purl rows. I like longer color changes these short color changes are busy looking.
I used all my Kroy yarn on these socks I had remnants of 4 balls. I thought I was using each of the dark balls of yarn for the toe but I eventually saw that I was knitting 2 toes from one ball. So I knit until it was gone and picked up the next 2 balls of the same color and knit to the end then used the last dark yarn for the ribbing. I did a diagonal knit 2 purl 2 in the leg and made a couple mistakes but I kept on knitting until they were done. They are socks that will be covered up by blue jeans; my feet won't care if the diagonals change direction. Still happy with sticks and string.--Ann-- linking to OTN at Judy's
