I love the yarn (Knitterly Things Vesper Sock in Watermelon Tourmaline), and the colors are just the pick-me-up I needed for the winter doldrums. However, the pattern… the pattern, no offense to the lovely designer who did a wonderful job at designing and writing out the pattern… the pattern leaves me full of meh. It’s easy and pretty, but it’s not for me. I want a pattern that will really show off and play with the striping, which this kinda does, but I don’t want to knit another pair of Jaywalkers (only because I have about 8) and I don’t know how I feel about some of the other chevron patterns I have come across. I almost want teeny zig-zags, but I haven’t found a pattern for such. Off to ravelry to search for something else then….
Now to watch Matt cringe as I frog this sucker. Heheheh!
