But sometimes the yarn is fifty cents a skein and it's four days before Christmas and you just want to knit something easy and watch the yarn do the work. If you want the full story of these socks, it's here. The socks are still kicking around the house and occasionally wind up on a pair of feet when it's really cold and there isn't a wool pair handy.
All of Judy's talk about sock yarn pooling and flashing reminded me of this pair, which I knit seven years ago in KnitPicks Dancing.
There are perfect two row stripes in the pools. How does that possibly work?
This is the last week for Show Us Your Socks until Fall. By the time Judy starts it up again, I'm definitely going to have some new pairs to show off. They probably won't be those fingering weight pink ones I was working on a couple of months ago.
