As several folks predicted, unpacking the yarn was a whole lot more fun than packing it up. Since the stash was going into a new size and shape of storage (no more under-the-bed), it needed a slow and careful review. Seems I have a lot more bits and ends of fingering-weight yarn than I had thought. I predict many future projects knit in multiple colors of fingering.
Yep. Cables. This is the Rattlesnake Creek pattern. I love the way the strands wander from one cable to another. But this yarn is very smooth and urban. "Rattlesnake Socks" doesn't strike me as a madly appropriate name for the project. Struggling with alternatives, I've come up with some possible words to incorporate into the name -- 'winding', 'wandering', 'roads', 'highways', and such. Still working on it. Assistance would be welcome. Any ideas?
