Spot on

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.

Wow, a fantastic sock. The brown does tone it done, but also brings out the colours. Might have to try this with one of my yarns. Anita

I came across your blog and I must say I am very impressed! You are Gooood! I have just taken on the art of sock making and I hope to one day be a natural at it. Thanks for sharing such wonderful works of art! =)
