Warning - Fugly Sock Is Posted - VAYOR!

SOS #3 - FawkesSOS #4 - KB Design
View At Your Own Risk - SOS#3 - fugly sock AKA "Fawkes" sock by Momma Monkey at Socktopia and SOS#4 a KB Design in Zen String sock club colour "Lily". (This is also my August sock for SAM4). Number 5 is on the needles, "Party Socks" from Favourite Socks in the July Pick Up Sticks club colour "Green Apple" Shelridge Farm yarn. I joined the Sockamania club and have cast on the August pattern "Spiralling Socks" in yarn from The Loopy Ewe (JKnits "Miami") and am really enjoying this knit - after the fuglies, my eyes need a break!

I have also joined the Chevron Scarf KAL, and have two versions going. One is in Zen String Harmony, the "Chocolate Cherise" and a limited edition pink colourways, the second version is Scout's Swag "Orchids" and Fleece Artist "Moss" - quite possibly my favourite green.

I am trying to break out of this sock-addiction, well, um-m-m... after I wrap up the eleventy-hundred sock KAL's that I'm in. For inspiration though... I bought another kit from One Planet Yarn & Fibre. I am already a fan of Melissa's patterns and this one was too cute to resist, the "Sunshine Tank". I've already downloaded the pattern - just waiting on the yarn - I'm going with the exact yarn specified, right down to the colour. Most of the KAL's I belong to have voted on the August, August / September designs and I went stash diving to find some nice combinations. Here's some of what I came up with:

Hmmmm... It's interesting to see the Firebird knit up. I'm still not sure about purple and orange together and I was considering doing the Fawkes pattern. I love the pattern, but I'm not sure about the colours and the stripiness of the yarn.

and which are the fugly socks? I don't see any!! (I like purple and orange)
I love to see all your upcoming plans and new yarns - very inspirational!
Karin said…
Don't do it! This is possibly the ugliest thing I've ever knit - I don't care for orange at all - but I have a niece with a love of Harry Potter and eclectic taste in colours - so I knit it as fast as I could and it's out the door :)!

You've been a busy girl! I like how your SOS#2 turned out. And I'm looking forward to seeing more of your July PUS, such a pretty green.
Monika said…
Wow, you've quite a lot going! I love the chevron scarf, but have yet to make one! ;o)

My vote's in for "not fugly", so it's me, Pat, and your niece. ;)

Your Yarn Pr0n gives me stash envy...

I just bragged on you for being a sock whiz. You should set up a SockSmackdown.

The socks look fine. They are socks, after all. Damned fine ones.

Thank you, all the friends of the fugly sock - I must admit, I really liked the purple bits! I'm not sure what it is with orange and me, I just can't go it - but that leaves lots of orange-y yarns for those who do :)!
