Okay, I bought 2 skeins of a yarn that was an orange, yellow and grey colorway. Same maker, same dye lot, everything the same. I thought I'd make striped socks.
So, made the first sock on Saturday. Didn't come out striped, came out sort of like a diagonal pattern over the whole sock. Looks like the outline of a country or something. Kinda cool actually so I didn't think anything of it.
Started the second sock yesterday afternoon. Same dye lot, mind you. The second sock is striped. Is that bizarre or what? Has this happened to anyone else?
I usually just knit right off the skein, I don't wind yarn into balls. I'm thinking that maybe if I had started with the other end of the second skein that it would have made the same pattern as the first sock.
I'm not really particular and now they'll be unique, but strange, huh?
