{WIP} Hey, Hey, Hey

I'm a sucker for test knitting and I'm working on another pattern by Megan.  This time it's the Blurred Lines socks which should be released in late August.

  
This pattern uses self-striping yarn, so after digging through my stash I undug my Quaere Fibers self striping in the Tokyo Underground colorway and got to work. Since my yarn does  not have 4 rows or more between stripes, I'm testing the method of doing it every other color change. 

And....you may notice I am knitting these toe-up TWO AT A TIME. BOOYAH. I'm getting to my sock knitter's goal of learning. (and this way I won't have second sock syndrome)

And since the sock pattern is called Blurred Lines....I've had the song stuck in my head non-stop since casting on. Hey, hey, hey.
