This is my generic ribbed sock. I'm using Kroy Socks FX yarn.
In the interests of time, I decided to discontinue the ribbing on the instep just above the heel.
Rather than a harsh contrast, I decided to knit a few rounds of the new yarn, then alternate with the other yarn. Hoping it would look like some type of design feature. At this point I was ready to start the decreases for the toe so I just continued with the new yarn.
The other thing I did was use a jogless stripe technique so the colour transitions would look smooth. You can see it a little bit but it's not a really obvious 'jog'.
My head is dancing with ideas for upcoming projects, mostly inspired by my knitting sessions from my Irish knitting tour.
