I've been knitting more socks for charity. Specifically, I wanted to make another pair for Mittens_4_Akkol before they were done with the sock challenge. (And they're a fast bunch of knitters, so I had to hurry.)
In addition, I decided to use up this ball of yarn.
For a large pair, I mixed it with some Patons crazy stripes.
And this is how they turned out!
They're done toe up using the Coriolis sock pattern with 2 strands of sock yarn using size 5 dpns. They're large on my feet, and measure to 27 cm (the size I was aiming for!) (My bookmark--and yes I do have one--doesn't turn up the pattern. It's by Cat Bordhi and was on the DIY show Knitty Gritty.)
They're definitely fraternal, rather than identical.
Here you can see a better view of the Coriolis swirling around the sock. That's where the increases are for the gusset, and then are a decorative element up the leg.
There was yarn leftover, so next I paired it with a Patons black sock yarn. (Note to self: Buy more black sock yarn, it's very useful.)
And look how pretty these turned out:
Magic "32" pattern on size 5 dpns. These measure 17 cm and will also go to Akkol.
Some of the Patons stripes was leftover, so I'm working on another pair, this time pairing it with a Cascade 220.
So far "they" (meaning: I hope there will be a second one) look like this:
Lots of pinks make lots of socks.
