My sherbet socks are coming along swimmingly. I almost got the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome. But thankfully, I didn't! *Grin*
I googled "Child's First Sock" and came upon many bloggers who have made up this same pattern. It definitely does not look nice in self-striping yarns, and most knitters have used solid colors. I think that my yarn is just perfect for this pattern. The yellow pops up occasionally, but doesn't dominate the pink, and so far, it hasn't pooled. I am just having so much fun with this pattern! The needles are a different story...I should have gotten sock needles, but oh well. These work. I didn't want to switch between socks either. Oh, that would have been awful if they ended up different sizes!
I think this will be my next pair of socks:
I have literally looked at this pattern scores of times. I think they would be perfect for self-striping yarn, because they have a bit of detail, but just down the back. I have some beautiful yarn for another pair of socks, but I would also like to do some crocheting. I suppose I could have more than one project at the same time... We'll see what happens.
