Seems I don't have many solid color sock yarn leftovers.
This practice project call for solid color yarn in as many colors possible.
This all I could gather.
I'll work with what I have since this is a practice.
If my swatch turns out decent
and I like the technique
I'll consider purchasing small skeins of various colors.
The step after assembling solids is to make two 'magic balls'.
One from the light colors and another from the dark.
These 'magic balls' are made with arms' length of each color.
The aim is to place pleasing colors next to each other and knot them together to form a small ball.
Here's my light magic ball.
Brandon Mably showed how he knits the yarn ends as he adds each new color,
thus no need to find a darning needle to weave in those pesky ends.
I'll be casting on and knitting a practice swatch.
Photos will follow just as soon as my swatch is far enough along to show some progress.
I think this is going to be a fun practice.

I don't know whether to think that Spring is actually here or if Mother Nature is playing a trick on us.
The temps yesterday and today are what are called Marvelous.
Mid to high sixties had us opening windows and doors.
The forecasters are saying we'll be able to enjoy such weather for the next seven or so days.
We can only hope.
Heck, we still have snow at the end of our driveway.
