A few months ago, I impulsively bought a skein of MadelineTosh sock yarn because it was such as gorgeous fuchsia colour. My plan was to make socks for me, but I gave them to my stepdaughter because they ended up the tiniest whisker too big for me and the perfect fit on her.
I knitted the two socks together, using the inside of the ball for one and the outside for the other. I ended up with almost no leftover yarn because I was able to keep knitting until I ran out. I love knitting two socks at a time from the toe up for that reason.
Yes, I am a little disappointed that I did not keep them for myself, especially because the colour is so beautiful and such a good match for the beanie I made and the scarf I am still working on.
Maybe I will have to cast on another pair of socks for me!
If you are a knitter, the pattern and other details are on my Ravelry page.
