I have definitely been breaking my "only three projects at a time" rule lately. I'm not sure why, but I have not had the attention span for the three half-finished sweaters hiding out in my closet and when I got some new yarn at Webs last week, I couldn't help it, I had to cast on for a new pair of socks.
Isn't it pretty? This is Lang Yarns Jawoll Magic Degrade, a 75% superwash wool, 25 nylon blend, fingering weight. It is a lot like some of the other Lang Yarns products I have tried in the past, it is a little scratchy, the weight is a little funky, and the colors are simply delicious! It will become more evident as I continue to knit up the socks and post more pictures, but this yarn has amazing long color repeats, and unlike in Noro yarns, all the colors actually match well. This is actually how I've always imagined Knit Picks Chroma to be like (but perhaps Chroma is softer).
I picked out the pattern Tadpoles by Jenna Swanson, which is uncharacteristic for me because the pattern is a top-down construction. But we all have to mix it up every once in a while to keep things exciting, right?
