Pooling: I don’t like it

Do you see this?  Do you SEE the pooling?  No?  How about now?

It’s driving me crazy!  I don’t know if I want to keep knitting it, or if I should just frog.  I do like how it’s coming out (maybe I’d add another repeat to the top because it’s a little short) but the pooling makes me want to cry.  The heel looks fine, but the leg…  =/  I think I’ll have to find a different yarn to work this pattern up, unfortunately.  Anyone want to suggest a good sock yarn with a nice shade of yellow?  Not something from Knitpicks; I want something different this time.

On a more positive note, I’ve been playing around with my camera and some posterboard and I get pretty pictures!  I did a better job with this picture than the ones above.  Something about the lighting…  This is the yarn I had left after finishing my Enmeshed Shawl – now named Sumire’s Shawl.  I have an idea for a cardigan too…  Hehe.

Leftovers from my Revontuli Shawl.  I wish I had thought of this before I knitted up my Revontuli Shawl, but oh well!

    I really like what you’ve done with the posterboard. Very creative; the pictures look so sharp and professional!

    I had to look at biggie sized pictures to really see the pooling. To me, it’s only really noticeable in the heal (???) ribbing, and to me, I don’t think it’s bad at all. It won’t show with shoes… I like the color. Colors. I think the honeycombs are so strong and so beautiful, that’s where my eyes go first.

    But I guess I’m always game for new yarn, too. 🙂 What if you get some white or cream and dye it yourself???
