Banded Gecko Socks

That picture is a Sonoran Alligator Lizard, but Banded Gecko sounds catchier an they've got the same kind of stripes. There just wasn't a picture in the book to compare my socks to. 

I knew I'd seen a reptile somewhere that looked like these stripes!

These aren't my favorite socks, but I'll wear them. The yarn (in case anyone wants sock that look like a southwestern lizard) is Patons Kroy Socks, colorway Buckthorn Stripes. I've used a lot of this yarn over the past few months and loved it, but my second skein of this one was splitty. No idea why -- it was new from the store, so there weren't any storage or age issues.

I'm linking up to Yarn Along and Patchwork Times. For more finishes, check out  Finish it Up FridayCan I get a Whoop Whoop?, and Freedom Fridays.

Now THAT is a fun comparison! I will think of that every time I wear mine. :)
