Yesterday afternoon, I finished the first one of the Spot Check socks. The photo includes the remaining Koigu to show two things:
1. that yarn is just as crazy as I said it was, and the sock pattern really tones down the crazy to something more reasonable.
2. the first sock used less than half a ball of the Koigu (yes, I weighed it) so I will be able to make the whole pair of socks using just one skein -- I will have another skein left to make a pair with a different background colour. I like this colourway with the brown, since it gives a bit of a 70s feel to the colour palette, but I would like it with black, too, I think (more 80s?) or maybe even something completely different.
