Two by Two, Part Two
Look, it's a pair of socks! My FIRST pair of socks! Hoorah for me!
Details: Louet GEMS merino yarn, hand-dyed by me using the Gaywools dye in the Louet sock dying kit. The pattern also came from the kit - a basic 4x4 rib, top-down sock, with a slip-stitch heel. Fits me perfectly, although I would have liked a longer cuff. This pair of socks took well less than 100 grams of the 150 grams of yarn included with the kit. I might be able to knit another matching pair from the remaining yarn, but instead I think I'll knit a pair with solid-blue heels and toes, and use the hand-dyed yarn for the rest.
Next up: The Lambs Pride Moderne Log Cabin Blanket, shown here with one of the surprises in my Easter basket from Earle. Yes, that is a sheep head on top of that Pez dispenser!
