I have decided that the Kitri socks look really good with blue jeans. Or, they will when they’re done, anyway. I mean really; look at this!
Awesome. Even though it was on the dark side out when I took this picture, and so you don’t get to see the full range of awesomeness that is the color combination, I think you can see enough to agree with me. This sock will be wonderful with jeans.
Which is good. I wear mostly jeans these days.
Also, I’m having a ton of fun knitting it. Even though I don’t knit as much right now as I had been (I’ve been going to Christmas Caroling rehearsals — the theatre group I play with has a Victorian Caroling offshoot, and the rehearsals have been taking up two nights a week, plus random things on weekends) I still love the simple yet intricate pattern that is the fan on the leg of Kitri.
I don’t expect that I’ll still be able to call the beaded lace edging “simple yet intricate”. Intricate, yes. Simple, I doubt.
But that’s looking ahead, because I’m not there yet.
Anyway, the one thing I don’t like about this sock is the yarn. I don’t hate it, but it’s not my new favorite yarn to knit with. It’s on the splitty side, and when doing k2tog or ssk through the back loop, you don’t want a splitty yarn. It was a kit, though, so I didn’t pick the yarn. And I don’t dislike it enough to stop knitting the sock.
