kitty: Musical Toes

Item : Musical Toes
content: Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn
needles: 2.25mm


For some reason the colour combination of this yarn kind of reminded me of some of Annie Albers latter works. So for the stitch pattern I searched through old Bauhaus photos and also old stitch pattern books from the 20's and 30's. I found one photo of a vest that Annie Albers husband was wearing that had a similar pattern in a light and dark yarn.

The design is also similar to a weaving pattern that was attributed to the Bauhaus school. So I played around with it until I was able to duplicate the appearance or at least as close as I could. It is also a bonus since it is a ribbed stitch.

I had read on a lot of blog sites that people are having problems with this yarn holding the shape during the day. So lets hope the all over ribbed will help.


  1. Hi Fleegle..

    They are extremely scratchy!! It was also really unpleasant to knit with it. I guess I am spoiled. I really like soft sock yarn.

  2. this is the first time I've seen this knitted up, and it is really beautiful.

    Too bad it feels so scratchy! I guess Noro is kind of resting on their laurels now...maybe it will soften up with washing?
