on a good note ....

i finished a pair of socks! i had been working these two at a time on separate sets of dpns. it seems, that's the only way for me not to make orphans. i especially don't mind the process when it's a standard self patterning yarn ... the perfect mindless project, free of thought and counting.


the yarn is regia's arctic color, 64 sts, cpy dpns 2.25mm. i love a good basic sock. i have some pretty socks. i have lots of pretty socks, but it's the easy care ones i reach for the most.

"on a good note ..." implies a bad note .... which will follow soon enough. let's just say fulling. damn!

Nice socks.. they look great with the sandals (Birks I'm assuming..) too. While I like looking at interesting lacey socks I much prefer the 'plain vanilla' variety for wearing.

That's just the approach I'm thinking will work for me and my mittens...not to mention that the gauge will be more consistent working that way, as well.
Nice socks. I agree about the *easy care* socks being used most.

Way to let the pretty yarn do "all" the work. Have a great weekend!

Congrats on a happily-mated pair of adorable socks! I heart Regia for very wearable socks.
