Identical or Fraternal Socks
Most of my socks are identical to each other rather than fraternal. It's a matter of preference, I suppose. I'm delighted when there are two and am not suffering from SSS (single sock syndrome) What are your thoughts?
I completed these socks several weeks ago. I used a standard "vanilla" sock pattern and I can't remember who the yarn manufacturer is....sorry! Anyway, they will match a sweater that is about 90% completed with the goal of wearing it at the next Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival.
So, if you were straining to see what those knitting books are............well,....these are just a few of the many that I own. I especially like "Sock Innovation" and the "Joy of Sox" speaking of which as I was thumbing through the book I food the pictures to be quite provocative and then remembered that it is a "spoof" on that other book. You know the one I'm talking about....the one on your nightstand, perhaps!!!!
I just completed a shawlette with pictures coming in a few days after I have blocked it. I've also been knitting this baby sweater and am about 50% on the road to completion. This is very cheap yarn that I fell in love with. There is no mention as to the fiber content, how many grams/yards/weight, etc. The colorways are gorgeous and at $1/skein, I just couldn't resist. It feels very soft as I am knitting the sweater so I am delighted at this win/win project. This colorway, not really pink but can't think of what it reminds me of except the first sweater I knitted my own baby many years ago.
Now, to find a baby girl to gift this sweater to.
