Houston, we have a problem

August 22nd, 2010 by May


Half way through the second sock, I decided to put them side by side. Now, major problem. second sock, looks way different in colour.

I started the second sock from the other end of the yarn because I was trying to avoid the knot in the malabrigo socks (can’t remember if my skein had it) and now, I think I’m going rip the second sock and rewind the yarn, try to find the knot and start knitting it again.

My progress on this sock is stalled. I lost one of my dpns at my in-laws house and who knows when I’ll be going to pick it up. So, for now, I might have time to fix this.

What do you think? will this look too strange if I kept going as it is?

    I definitely see the difference — depends on how much this would both you.

    A pair of socks – I’d just finish them and get on to the next pair LOL!!!

    On my monitor, it looks like the top of the first sock is darker than the second sock, but also that the foot of sock1 is about the same shade as sock2. If that’s true then you probably wouldn’t notice the shade difference too much since you mostly see the feet-part of socks.

    Are you guaranteed that they would have the same shading if you re-knit?

    I don’t think it would look strange if you kept it as is.

    oh..did you try looking at it with different light sources? maybe it’s not as bad as you think.

    Oh no! I totally sympathize. That pattern is too complex to keep going if you won’t be happy with it. I’ll have to make sure any malabrigo sock I buy in the future won’t do that.
