Back in March, I started, and finished, my first hand-knit sock. After waiting for my foot to grow a couple more inches, I finally decided it would be quicker to frog back and re-knit the toe. I gave great consideration to hiding it away and never knitting another sock again but I'm glad I took the time to make it right. For some reason (huh, wonder what), I moved on and knit 6 other pairs of socks before finally returning to knit the mate for this first lonely sock.

But finally, after sitting alone in a drawer for over 6 months, sock #1 has a mate! And guess what! They don't match! They are both knit from the same color of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport but one is clearly darker. And you know what? I. don't. care. Nope not one bit! I now have 7 pairs of hand-knit socks! Yay!

OK - I'm inspired - I am going to finish that second SKB sleeve this weekend - I am. And 7 pairs of socks - that's great - that means you finished 7 SECOND socks - that is dedication. I don't know how people do socks.

I'll bet they are incredibly soft! I couldn't see the difference until you mentioned it :o)
