Second Sock FairIsle


The more you do the easier it gets! I am really having a lot of fun with it. At first the 'color jogs' got me. Then I tried to use patterns that made it less obvious. I really would appreciate some help from those of you that know how to stop that color jog. Please help me with what ever tips or links you have to offer!! Both socks are down to the instep now. Heading to the toes!

Jean,
Meg Swansen has a great method of hiding the jogs in color work. I could follow the first one from her written instructions, but found the video much better for the "whole" project. It is on her video of the Dubbelmoussa. It's much like the "aha" moment of turning your first heel.
