08-08-08 - A FO & A New Start
I finished the second pair of socks for SOS08 a few minutes ago. These are made from Vinca color #8. I started them back on July 18th, but let them languish for over a week when I discovered a mistake a few rows back in the blueberry waffle stitch. Yesterday, I sat down, tinked back & got going again. I was disappointed that once again the two skeins of yarn didn't come close to matching - the solid grey around the heel of the left sock was nowhere to be found in the first skein and I was unable to find a spot in the second skein that would let me start with a solid blue that would then meld into a blue grey mix. Still, I like the yarn and love the way that it demands just a few more rows to see what the next color change will be.

And here is the next pair - again Vinca yarn in color #551, size 2 Harmony double points and my usual toe up pattern. I haven't even started to think about what design I'll add either to the instep or the leg, but I love the shades in these skeins.
