Andrew likes plain old ribbed socks, but he thankfully likes color as well.
However, the most recent pair of Zauberballs started out boring and stayed that way for a very, very long time.
It's even worse if you're knitting them in the evening in crappy light, which is when I do most of my knitting. Each sock looked like the same, boring color all the way from the cuff to the start of the heel. I could see other colors in the ball of yarn, but I couldn't actually seem to get there.
Most Boring Zauberball Ever (ravelled here),
knit in Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball 100, color 1699
I've started another pair in Biscotte & Cie Vintage variegated yarn. Bring on the color!
