The socks are done, I finished them about 10 minutes ago! Overall I love the mis-matched socks even though I'm a matchy matchy girl deep down inside.
The pattern is one that is in my head that is old and memorized and fits my feet exactly. I love to knit the same patterns over and over again.
The Noro sock yarn (taiyo sock yarn) is a lovely long repeat colorway. Half of the yarn is cotton and that is hard on my hands, I tend to shy away from cottons because of this. The yarn is tightly spun so while I was knitting it would easily twist up and tangle.
On the second sock I was finishing the short rows and heading to the gusset pick up when to my surprise there was a knot made with green yarn added to the lavender yarn! (the company did not match up the wool colors). I was lucky to pull a bit out and continue with the sock with enough of the remaining skein. Phew!
