Finished Socks

I finished my "carry around" socks the other day, so that means I have to get another pair going.  I like to have a plain project available to take with me for waiting rooms, etc. so that usually means plain stockinette socks.  I'm wanting to do some patterned socks, too, so perhaps that will mean two pairs of socks will be started in the near future.

For now, here are my finished ones.  This was my first pair of self-striping socks, and now I know why they're so popular.  You can just knit and still come up with a cool pattern.  And it's fun to watch the stripes form themselves without any help from the knitter.  All good.

These are made in Vesper sock yarn from Knitterly Things.  The colorway is Domino.  I learned about this yarn by reading some reports from the last Spring Fling, which I did not attend, but which apparently was overrun with Vesper sock knitters.  Never one to be left out, I bought some from a Ravelry destash, and then hit an update for this yarn.  I love these socks and can't wait to knit another pair.

I just might have a Halloween colorway that was recently added to the stash, so I'll be in fine shape for next year!
