Twisted Socks

Needles: 2 24" Addi Turbos (US 1)
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, Watercolor
Special Technique: Twisted Stitch
Started: August 31, 2005
Completed: October 7, 2005
Recipient: Wife

These socks look much better in the foot than on the leg because I wasn't trying to do the twisted stitch ribbing. Textured socks and too much color contrast really don't go together.

It was very interesting to see how the two separate skeins ended up looking. The color lengths were quite different between the two, as you can see better in the picture below. So if you're the kind of person who likes your socks to match perfectly, beware the hand-painted yarns! Me, I think it looks pretty nifty.

A different vantage point.

Well, the striping is nifty, but I can't see the knitting pattern at all. I hate when that happens!
