Welcome to Socktoberfest!
If you're part of the online knitting world, you know about Socks that Rock yarn.
Well, I have discovered the Socks with Knots yarn. It has nothing to do with Socks that Rock....
Remember when I told you about the obnoxious sock that was trying my patience and stretching my sense of propriety?
Update: I continued it just as it was, thinking I would donate it to new amputees coming back from the war. It occurred to me that an amputee with a prosthesis and a sense of humor might be amused by wearing socks that are sort of alike but not really--so I cast on with the extra yarn for a second sock, knowing it would not match the first one.
The second ball started soon after the starting color for the first sock. Oh well. (Breathe, gal, breathe....) Since I'm not making matching socks anyway, why not just cast on wherever--right?
And in a fit of talking-while-casting-on, I managed to do an inch of 1x1 ribbing at the top of the sock, despite the fact that the first sock has 2x2 ribbing. (Will the donee still think this is funny or is the lack of symmetry just too much now?!)
And then--I came to a second knot. And tied to that knot was a totally different color, going in the opposite color pattern direction.
OK. I have had enough. While I will finish these socks, it will take more bravery than I can currently muster to show you the finished objects....
Instead, in appropriate Soctoberfest fashion, I will entertain you with my favorite beer:
