just in time for Socktoberfest...



i just love it when sock yarn shows up at my front door...

8 balls of Gedifra Fashion Trend Sportivo in colours 5793,5763,5768,and 5704 that i purchased from FunKnits. and another ball of the ever popular Trekking XXL 100, from the Knitter.com.

i cast on right away with the Gedifra because i have never used it before and just had to know what it was like.

it's rather funky. it has a thin elastic running between the twists of yarn... it makes the socks in progress really springy and stretchy (i like!). but as i'm knitting with it the yarn is bunching around the unstretched elastic...


and lastly, i have one Tropicana sock finished... ermmm... almost finished. i have to weave in the ends (yarn is Trekking XXL in colour 106).

So that's the yarn you had last night!
You might want to try re-winding the ball very loosely. Or, try holding the yarn differently? That's annoying when it does that. I'm going to have to start looking at that Trekking yarn...

Thanks for being a part of Socktoberfest!

thanks for organizing Socktoberfest Lolly! :D

Tracy... i'm going to wind the next ball a little looser and see how that works out. it's knitting up really nicely, despite the funky bunches in the working yarn.
