It's always fun to see how the yarn will work up. I never intentionally try to match up the color sequence. Sometimes it does, but that's really a fluke! I prefer to just let the yarn have a mind of its own. That also makes each pair so unique and truly one of a kind.
All the socks get a good hand washing and then are blocked before adding them to our Etsy shop. They always look so nice after going through this process. Blocking can really make a difference with hand knits.
Years ago I had a customer in my shop that was having trouble with a front button band on her vest that was refusing to lay flat. She said that she had tried everything. So, I recommended some serious blocking. Really serious. Wet it, pin it, allow it to dry and repeat the process until it laid flat. A week later she came back and was shocked that it had worked! Blocking is a good thing!
I think Monday might be a good day to have another little giveaway, so I hope that you'll check back then to see what we have in mind! Have a great weekend.
