Fleece Artist

The Sockbug purchased some Fleece Artist sock yarn and was wondering how it knits up. Recent skeins seem to be not as tightly plied as previously, but I have had no problem knitting my pair up on 2.5mm needles with a tension of 8.5 sts/inch.

Sigh - still with problems uploading pictures to my blog! Is anyone else having this problem? Or is this some sort of conspiracy against me?!

Anyway - above is the Picasa picture of the socks. You may notice that the right (lifted) sock has slightly darker/richer colours. This is not a trick of the light, it knit up that way. It seems to be a bit of a trend as the Yarn Harlot also experienced this issue. It doesn't really bother me but it is so noted. Otherwise they are great socks - sturdy without being rough and with so many self-patterning yarns I really enjoyed the randomness of these.

    Thanks for the photo! I see what you mean about the color thing. I hope mine turn out that random.
