I started these socks yesterday, just because. I didn’t want to do plain ol’ stockinette stitch, and there isn’t much you can do with self striping yarn that doesn’t make it look messy, so I went with 3×1 ribbing. But, now i’m not so sure if I like it or not…
You see how the first knit stitch after the purl is gap-y and stretched out? That really bugs me. Do you guys get gaps like that? Does it bug you as much as me? I think I want to rip them out and do a Picot hem, just becuase I’ve never done it. Does a picot hem look okay with self striping yarn? I dunno. Maybe I’ll just sit here and Google it for a little while.
Have a nice weekend!
