I have tried this pattern twice in the past and both times ended up with failure early on. Now I wonder why didn't I get it. This pattern is a darling. As easy as stockinette and much more thrilling to watch grow. Oh and it loves variegated yarns and how many patterns can you say that about!
I was down to my last ball of variegated sock yarn, one I have had for a long long time, one that I would just keep pushing to the bottom of the pile because I didn't like the colours.
So here was the plan; to knit a pattern I didn't like with a yarn I didn't care for.
And I have ended up with success, go figure.
Maybe they should have a talk with the thneed.
