Remember when I was trying to decide which yarn to use next? It was going to be one of these. They’re all described on the linked blog post.
My decision was to use the purple, green and pink Mardi Gras yarn. But, being the nice girl that I am, I showed Vince the 5 balls of yarn and asked him which one I should use. It makes my man feel good to help make decisions on things like sock yarn and quilt fabric! 🙂 Not really but Vince never fails to entertain me with his choices. He chose the one that has the sock started in the above picture. I asked him why he chose that one and here’s the conversation:
Me: Vince, pick one of these 5 yarns for my next socks.
Vince: That one (pointing to the one that has the sock started).
Me: Why that one?
Vince: Because it’s patriotic.
Vince: Yes, red, white and blue. Can have the socks when you’re done?
Me: Why don’t you let me knit the socks and then you decide if you want them?
Folks, that yarn is pink, magenta and black. The lighting is excellent in our living room. How he thought this yarn was red, white and blue is beyond me and no, my man is not wearing pink socks!
Here’s what sock #1 looks like knitted.
No red. No white. No blue. Figure that one out for me, will you?
