So I finished those mismatched green socks yesterday.

As you can see (and as I have mentioned), these socks are two different colors. Two different shades of green. Both socks were knit from one 100g skein of Esstenial. I divided the skein into two balls, the inside and the outside. So clearly there was some uneven dyeing or some fading or something. This is possibly why the yarn was on sale when I bought it. I love KP Stroll though and I have no problem with mismatched socks.

The pattern was also lovely. The lace pattern was very easy to memorize but interesting enough to make knitting the socks fun and not boring. Perfect TV knitting. They are a big large on me (they’re 64 stitch socks and I usually make 56 stitch socks for myself) but I think they’ll shrink just a tad in the washing machine.

And anyway, now I have a new pair of socks for the winter. Which, yay. I’ve already started a pair of sockettes with the leftovers, which shouldn’t take too long to knit.
