Addie’s first pair of short socks are finished. I mentioned that they would be finished but I don’t think I ever showed a picture of them finished.
The foot part of the socks came from the same skein of yarn.
This sock is much darker and almost has a striping pattern.
This sock is lighter and more of a speckled pattern. Same number of stitches on the needles . . they were done two at a time. It can be frustrating when there is so much variation in color in the same skein of yarn. If I were making a sweater and one sleeve looked like the top sock and one sleeve looked like the bottom sock, I wouldn’t be real happy. For socks, I can live with it. It’s just the way it seems to be with hand dyed yarn — sometimes worse than other times.
This is a second pair of socks for Addie using the same pattern (Jelly Rolls). Obviously, I didn’t do the striping on the heel or instep but I did use the basic instructions. For this second pair, I got them past the heel turn and gusset reduction so now all I have to do is straight knitting for the foot, then the toe.
But, for now, I’ve had about enough fingering weight knitting so I’m going to switch back to Blue Sand.
If I can get the gray stripe done and the ribbing done over the next few days, I’ll be happy.
