The Story of Sock #9

After finishing my Eunice socks, I picked up one of the neglected socks from my unfinished group, Sock #9 (Pattern Empoissonee, Yarn Lisa Souza Hardtwist Merino Petite). To my surprise, the yarn that I thought would be great for the pattern was not so great. I didn't realize that Lisa Souza's Little Devil colorway would be such a self-striper. And when I started increasing for the gusset, I got a big field of red that I didn't like:

So I picked up a different ball of yarn and gave it a shot. That would be the sock on the right in the above pic. Much better. I had been wondering what to do with that yarn!
