Completly fell for some self striping yarn from phildar that I found online. Then completly fell out of love with it after knitting some. Turns out; I do like the colours all wound up to a nice ball but not the striping repeats. I want to make my own repeats.
I put the yarn in the back of the closet and tried to forget all about it until last night. I decided to use them all together with some leftovers from other projects. And so far I love them!
Hoping second sock syndrome isn’t going to hit me on this one, I still have two other pairs half finished. MUST. PERSERVERE. MUST.

Yay! Finished! Next time either use smaller needles or cast on less, they are a bit on the sloppy side… But truly nice house socks for relaxing on the couch after a long day.
(casted on 12, increased to 60, 56 might have been better or needle size 2)
