Another catch-up blog about Op-Art socks. This might be my favorite pair from the book, Symmetry. In the socks shown here, narrow stripes of a variegated yarn are traversed by stripes in a darker color. This project is simple and can be easily worked by beginners. For added visual play, the right and left socks are mirror images.
Ik wil deze voor de zoon breien. Ga ik voor groen en roest, of toch maar weer voor blauw en grijs? En is dat turquoise dan niet té?
I want to knit another pair for Dear Son. Green and rust? Or blue and gray? And is that turquoise not too girly?
I started the women’s size with the bluegrey Opal selfstriping yarn and Turquoise Lanagrossa. I like the colors together, not sure if DS will. But they came out too small, so I restarted in the men’s size. This time I used a solid grey for the cuff. Looks better, the grey tones down the turquoise and the size will be right too. As DS likes short cuffs on his socks, I only did 2 repeats of the chart. And if DS does not like these, I am going to keep them for myself.
I decided they are too bright for DS, so I am keeping these for myself. Totally my colors…
But DD liked these too, so the socks moved out of the house.
I'd better knit some more on my turquoise sweater (Wollmeise, color Oohm). I really like how this topdown shoulder is constructed, but I still have some more knitting to do before it is finished!
Yesterday we gathered with Belgian Ravelry members. It was a fun meeting with a lot of chatter, and a little bit less of knitting from my part. Too busy exchanging yarn and admiring other projects! So I forgot to take pictures, thankfully Pauli did, and I could use her photo!
