That's right. The Pyroclastic socks now look like this.
This clearly was not a meeting of the yarn and pattern. The knitting Goddess did not want this gorgeous Mountain Color to participate in a Pyroclastic flow.
The plain Jane plain stockinette stockings are happy. I suppose the Mountain Color is just a gently sloping alpine meadow.
Almost looks like a FROG mouth laughing at me. I fought the sock and the sock won.
