That is the question.
If you read the comments to yesterday’s blog post, you’ll find a lot of pros and cons associated with the Tofutsies yarn. So it seems as though it’s pretty much a subjective thing as to whether you’ll like it or not.
About the Colinette Jitterbug — it is low yardage — approximately 297 yards per skein, but commenters say it’s heavier than, say, Koigu, and you can get a decent-sized pair from one skein. Still, I’ll be dividing my skein into two balls when I get around to knitting it. And of course knitting it toe up. But then I almost always knit my socks toe up.
Commenter Leisel pointed me towards the Ample Knitters project for the Diamond Patch design from Jill Vosburg of Just One More Row. Wow! There’s a lot of inspiration there including a number of fabulous photos — thanks for pointing it out, Leisel.
My miters are coming along. Here is the progress photo of the front.
And I finished one Melon Ball sock.
Because I don’t have much to say, I’ll show you photos of all the crap on my fridge.
Lucy is mortified.
