small, but all ....

black & blue


this is the first pair of socks i have finished in some time .... the yarn is koigu, and the pattern is sockbug's river rapids socks. i knit these on size 2 crystal palace dpns. though the stitch pattern isn't obvious, it does make for more interesting knitting. both have a tubular cast on, which is my favorite for stretchy ribbed tops, but somewhere along the way one sock strayed from the other. again, because of the coloration, you can't see how they are different. there's another view over here.

of course this leaves me sockless, so to speak, and i need to cast on for another pair, but i am having trouble with the marriage of sock yarn, pattern, and gauge. i was thinking something in a solid color, with lots of texture ... or something really colorful with ....

I am absolutely in love with those socks, mostly because I love a good black and turquoise combo. You must love them, too since you finished them so quickly.
