Amy’s Socks and . . .

IMG_2017

One sock down and one to go! This is another Regia Arne and Carlos self-striping sock, and it really grabs people’s attention! I wish I were a true fair isler . . . but until then, I love the illusion of color work 🙂

The last time I used this yarn, I managed to figure out the color repeats well enough that both socks look exactly the same. This time around, the color repeat tricked me (just a little) so the second sock is a bit, well, different. I asked dear Amy if she cared (before I knit too far) and luckily she said she appreciates a little irregularity.

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday week (in the US) and a splendid regular week elsewhere! The blog will be offline for a couple of weeks . . . but I promise some fun surprises when I return . . .
