Twisted madness sock

I think this really matches the day or maybe the month.   Twisted Madness sock is the knitting chosen for a competition on Ravelry.    The way I understand it is that you must knit as much as you can of this pattern in two weeks and then they group those that have finished at least half of it, into groups according to how fast you accomplished this.   I am not a fast knitter.   This is the qualifying round.   There are 7 rounds after this, probably with each getting more difficult and less time.    It looked like a fun thing to do with all my free time.   Or maybe it was the 4 loads of laundry including the king size sheets that twisted my mind into thinking I should knit these.    Whether or not I qualify, I will still be able to get the patterns for the other 7 rounds.

I thought this was interesting.   This is from the two balls you see above.   I would not have guessed there was that much blue in it.   And perhaps that is how much of each color is in the ball.   It will be interesting to see it develop.
