My socks are not cooperating with the yarn pooling challenge. I thought for sure once the gusset was finished and I had decreased the stitches a bit more, the Sweet Georgia yarn would pool. No. But it is doing something a bit interesting. It is striping in long sections. See the heel? On the other side is a different colorway of stripes. It's doing the same thing now in the foot section.
The Prince Henry sock on the left is going to be unknitted and I'll start over. I think the needles are too big for this yarn. I also think I am going to do a ribbed leg instead of plain jane. I'll concentrate on Sweet Georgia first and get those finished.
I've been working on my Greta vest. I like how it is starting to take shape. I am going to work the armholes on this pretty soon so I can take those stitch holder pins out before I snag something major with them.
One thing I discovered about working all 3 of these projects this week is that I rather enjoy working on more than one thing at a time. Maybe it's working on the challenge or the changing of needle sizes from vest to socks or maybe it's just my lack of concentration with one project. I don't know. Whatever it is, it's working for me as I've made a bit of progress on all 3.
