I obviously fell in love with self striping yarn, and realized that stocking stitch makes for boring sock making.

I think I justa wanted to finish this sock, and made it too short. I forgot that knit elastic when stretched... shrinks in length. It stays up, though.

Now I just have to knit the next one, and hope they match.

Good job.  I love the color you chose.  One of these days I hope to complete a pair of socks.

Not only did I finish the other sock, I already knit a second pair!



These are broadripple on the knitty issue. Amazing socks to knit. I mixed the short row heel with the sl1k1 double thickness, and got extra sturdy heels. It was HARD to pick up the 5 wraps on the edges of the short rows, but I got it done!
