Pros: "sticky" and local
Cons: I'm not crazy about the color put-ups, and I would have to invest in a sweater-quanity up front since it's hand-dyed.
Pros: readily available, and silk for drape
Cons: harder to make nice looking stitches/floats due to silk? Also, I don't always love working with silk.
And now, because I can't help it, and I did take the pictures, dammit, here is my finished pair of Circus Socks. It was a toe-up, short row heel, k3p1 rib on the fly, and they're almost the same size-- one of the feet is a little smaller, and one of the cuffs is a little longer, both by maybe one row, and I've decided not to care.
I'm heading back to my sleeve now, and to read up on what everyone else is working on this lovely Wednesday afternoon!
