(mostly) Handspun Socks
Handspun Mockking XXL sockyarn knit up with contrasting purple KnitPicks sock yarn for the heels, toes and cuffs.
This pic ^ is true to color, no flash (the other two pics are slightly more blue due to the flash).
This was the quickest pair of socks I've knit to date...I'm no Yarn Harlot who can knit a sock a day! I think it took me 5 days of knit time to finish them. I guess I just don't have as much knit time in my day as some of the uber-knitters out there.
Guess what I'm wearing today?
I love these socks. Maybe my favorite pair I've made yet. The colors are very me, the handspun makes them cooler than the commercial sockyarn, since they're one of a kind, and I love that they match but don't.
Knit on US 1s, about 9 st to the inch for a nice stiff fabric. Good thing I had the purple cause they would have been anklets if I didn't do the second color! This is something I'll need to keep in mind for future socks, the cuff/toe/heel thing.
And, I need to take pics of the lovely package Bezzie sent, but alas I had to run this morning, and sock pics were the only thing on my mind!
