Sock Days of Summer

SOS Pair #5

Duet Skinny

A Swell Yarn Shop Duet Skinny in "Royal Tenor"
Size 0 Magic Loop

I'm very pleased with how these socks came out. Last time I used contrasting yarn, I had a lot of problems with the heel. The photo really doesn't do the colors justice... they are a bit bolder than they appear here.

If you haven't seen it already, you need to check out the new online knitting magazine, Twist Collective. The pattern selection is amazing!

Yes!! Twitter.

You know, my template is so old I can't add the nice Twitter box.

That's not a book I would generally pick up to read, but on your recommendation, I think I will.

Those really turned out great! I'm not usually a fan of contrasting socks, but these, I like.
