Yep, completed black socks. I'm sure that everyone who ever knit black socks will understand when I say that black is troublesome and not very inspiring to work on. There still are tails to work in but that won't take too long. Meantime,
isn't that nice? Meilenweit, you lovely stuff you. I love the soft colour variations. I hope her feet say ahhhh. And if not, one of my very lucky sisters' feet will!
Instead of two socks on the go, I've a request for one of these. I came across that the other day via a link at Sally Comes Unravelled to Shut Up I'm Counting (both good blogs). The pattern says you should use a yarn with good spring in it. So hmm, what's going to be worsted weight with good spring. I sense some learning here, and then maybe some small purchasing. Surely a couple bucks for a single skein of yarn is OK, even outside of the budget. Heck that's even cheaper than sock yarn, right. Not a problem at all.
There, that was easy. Pure rationalisation followed by a frantic search for a seriously great skein of yarn.
