Oh, I don't know. Knitting one of each was supposed to make it easier. Didn't quite work out that way.
What can I say? I like both of them. These are prewashing/preblocking pictures, and the color isn't quite right on either. In each case, the colors are deeper, richer, and more varied than is shown. The red, especially, is off as it has more berry tones to it and is a little less of a retina burner -- well, just a little less.
I'm leaning towards the blue, but that might be because crazy variegation isn't my thing. However, as far as that goes, the red yarn works really well. I'm also very pleased that there's no major pooling or flashing in either case since that's what turns me off some variegated yarns.
So does anyone out there have any thoughts on this? Hey, you never know, you just might be selecting your own socks!
