My latest pair of Frankensocks...

Hello...just a quick post today... should get out of my pajamas and take my car to the tire store to find out what wrong with the right rear tire...ugh!

Here are my latest pair of Frankensocks...

The heels and toes are Drops Fabel and the rest of the socks is bits and pieces of Opal and Regia and more Drops Fabel. I love the places where the faux Fair Isle pattern appear. These kind of socks are both fun and frightful to knit... since I'm using bits and pieces of yarn from socks I've already knit I know I like the colors but many times I don't know exactly how it will knit up as I can't identify the sequence of the colors.

What lurks inside those little balls of wonderfulness???

I cast on another pair of socks as soon as I finished this one. I'm back to playing with 2 self striping yarns. The last one of those I tried about 2 weeks ago is still in time out and will be scrapped. I thought I could get them to play nicely together but I was wrong. Irreconcilable differences... This time I'm using Drops Fabel 162, a deep turquoise and Wisdom Yarns Pix in Citrus Slide... you can see them here and here. I've only got the cuff done, so the jury is still out on whether they are compatible.

I'm linking up with Patchwork Times today ... check it out here and see what other people have are knitting this week.

Okay... off to shower and get dressed and then to get my tire hopefully fixed and not replaced.

happy knitting-
carol fun
