sockapaloooza complete!

here they are!! bound off yesterday afternoon. so glad to have them done. they are slightly small for me, which means they should fit my pal just fine. hoping they get over the ankles alright.





I used Regia Mini Rengel Stripe. i got so worried when i pulled them out of the stash because the numbers didn't match. not just the lot number, but the COLOUR number! huh?? i bought enough yarn for like 5 pairs of socks last year, and i don't know how i missed this. i got so worried, but cast on anyway. i have made some socks, and NEVER gotten the stripes to match up, no matter how hard i tried. so i didn't try. and you can see the toes started a bit off, but then on one sock i think i missed a row in the heel *ssssshh* and they matched the whole way up the leg. go figure!

i used addi turbos, size 1, and a size 4 for the bind off at the top. free pattern from elann.com. link not handy at the moment. did two socks, two circs, first time, all on my own, from a pattern written for dpns. yup. proud of myself.

How did you find the 2 circs method? I've been wondering if I would find it less fiddly and difficult than DPNs.

They're really fun ... and isn't knitting two at once the BEST?
