one of these things is not like the other
the whole time i was knitting the second sock, that old sesame street song kept playing in my head.
they are the ssaammee color, and the ssaammee dyelot, but one is definitely lighter than the other. or conversely, one is definitely darker than the other ;-)
beloved koigu from madrona, judy gibson you're putting me on socks.
and just for the hell of it, cranked out another pair, this time with knitpicks sock memories, flyfishing colorway. hmm, this color isn't on their website, maybe it's discontinued?
the knitpicks is not shiny at all like the koigu, and is a squinchier, i used 64 stitches instead of 60. but the fabric is much thicker without as much stretch as the koigu. and even though these are quite a bit longer in the foot, i still can't use up all the yarn. hmm, maybe i need to make kneesocks?
one thing i do like about these toe-ups is that they are so darn cute dangling from the needles!
hope all of you lucky people at ms$w are having a fabulous time without me, sigh.
