I received some lovely Christmas gifts from a friend.
They included sock yarn. Orange sock yarn. Self striping orange sock yarn.
Said friend and I had met via email through a mutual friend.
Apparently I talk about knitting often enough, and my love of all things orange, that he knew just what to get me. (Not just everyone would appreciate a gift that requires effort on their part. No-siree-bob!)
Here is the first finished sock:
Just my regular old plain jane sock pattern. 2x2 rib with a flap heel. Nothing super exciting since I didn't want to detract at all from the yarn's coloration.
I already cast on the second in an effort to stave off Second Sock Syndrome, and will take it on my trip this weekend...it will make a good purse project.
