yarn dominance

The first of the legwarmers I'm making based on Cookie's Red Herring pattern. Who can spot the point where I read Veronique's post on yarn dominance?

It's only one cm at the start, you can't see it unless the light is very good. And I now know, so won't do it for the second one. Do you think it'll even out more in blocking?

For info, they look and feel great worn, but I'm waiting till I've done both before I do the happy FO dance of joy and share it with you all.

i can barely tell.. and 1cm is so tiny that you may be able to get it to look a little less wonky upon blocking, i think.

isn't yarn dominance crazy? i love it!

looks incredibly neat apart from that though. My colorwork never looks like that.

I'm sure it won't matter: people aren't really going to be going round staring at your legwarmers on the tube...are they??

All your legwarmers have made me want to make some too. I may be copying your mermaid ones yet. We shall see.

Oh, that was a cool link. Thanks!

And as someone who is determined not to reknit a sock because of the first 1/2 inch below the cuff, I encourage you to not reknit the legwarmer :)

I can't really tell either...yarn dominance is such a wacky thing!!!!!

They look great! No one will notice anyway (unless it is another knitter who is a foot from your leg, and they will be sympathetic!)

Would have never noticed had you not pointed it out! But it looks great and I love the zig zag pattern.

Love the item, and many of the items you posted on other pages.

why can't I access to your entries when I hit the image at the right side of the screen while I can if I hit the text? Strange....
