beauty is in the eye of the beholder .....
i'm calling this the "ugly sock". the colors in the ball looked okay (rose, denim blue, camel/tan, sage). but knitted up ... blah ! (muddy!). because i think this sock is sooo ugly, i'm .... speechless.
mom likes it. so, i'm knitting mom a pair of socks. i have given her a "head's up" that the mate may be in a different stitch pattern, because i don't think i want to knit a garter rib again. it is mindless, but not satisfying.
these socks? beautiful! (at least in my mind's eye).
i thought about a modeling picture, but when i feel the whim of photography, either the daylight or temperature is not cooperating.
on the left, my lovely midnight sock is finished ... awaiting its mate. i did cast on the mate ... and started the lace pattern.
on the right, a sock that will not qualify for the sock knitters anonymous (may) challenge ... because i cast on prematurely. i just couldn't wait. i was dying to knit some k&p stitches! ((sigh ....) gansey!)) .... anne hanson's lighthouse gansey sock.
sock knitting ... always satisfying ... even if it's ugly.
