String Theory which is the name of this colorway. My Physics consisted of Radiation things and I got lost after reading like the first sentence explaining what ST was. I have no idea if the colors here have anything to do with ST or not, but I loved them. Guess I was liking orange way back when ;)
Anyhow, if you knew the who dyed the yarn, then the name String Theory would make sense. Adam, the man behind Yarn Nerd Yarns. Unfortunately, he no longer dyes yarns for sale as he's pretty busy in his new career.
I tried knitting this colorway before cuff down. It pooled like crazy, and I didn't like it. Knitting with this yarn though, it was wonderful. The base yarn is so very soft!
Sometimes for me, just reversing the knitting, a toe up sock changes the colors the way I like it.
Methinks my cuff knitting was a bit tense on sock 1...hmmm, it's the same number of rows...
The pattern is just my normal toe, foot knit to my normal length, and Wendyknit's Sportweight Toe up Gusset Heel. (oh I did use her stitch count too, but that's basically it) (linked to her free pattern page as I didn't want to link to a pdf)
I'll be teaching a toe up class in the future at a Guild meeting and I wanted to give them more options on heels. I've knit this heel before in fingering weight yarn, it's pretty easy to do. This time, it did pool a bit, but that's a normal spot for many colorways. I can live with that.
Gotta have a toe pic!
My favorite bind-off in rib. I've used this in hats as well, it's awesome.
Here it is again... Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-off aka JSSBO
I never learned this in Physics Class Socks

3.0 mm circular, magic looped as usual :)
My own generic sock pattern with heel from Wendyknits
Now this is what I love about knitting toe up.
Sometimes, all you have is a wee ball left. Not bad seeing how I didn't divide the skein like I usually do...
