and now for something entirely different

While waiting for the February challenge to begin, I finished another pair of socks. Do not panic -- the operative word is "finished." The first sock of this pair was cast on in September of 2007. By the time the green socks were done, the second sock of this pair had reached the heel turn, so I decided to work on no other sock until it was finished. And look -- it worked! Yarn is an Opal; I will do some research and come back with color number later. Edited to add: Opal Feelings, #1701.

Look how closely the feet match! Look how the legs don't match at all. Isn't that odd? I prefer not to worry about matching, and was quite surprised when this strange thing happened with the feet.


  1. Oops, I gave credit to Pat.
    Nice socks, Elizabeth.
    Love the stripes.

  2. Ooh, pretty! And the stripes — serendipitous!
    And somehow, it doesn't surprise me that you'd fill the time between socks with...surprise! More socks! —Linda

  3. LURVE those striped colors! I wish I were a fly on the wall in the room that contains your sock-yarn collection. You always have the most interesting colors.
