I finished a new pair of socks just in time for our cold, fall weather. I call them my "Wicked Socks."
I used Imagination
in "Wicked Witch" for the main color and "Frog Prince" for the contrasting heels, toes & cuffs. By using a contrasting color for the toes & heels, I only needed one skein of the Wicked Witch for very generously high socks. (My shoe size is 9, so it's not like I have tiny feet either.)
I must have loosened up considerably by the time I knit the second sock because my sock is a little bigger and the yarn pooled in slightly thicker stripes. You can see this on the left foot in this photo (sorry about the blurry photo--I'm sure you know how hard it is to photograph your own feet!):
Oh well, I love mis-matchy socks anyway! I wore them on Friday, and they kept my feet toasty warm (but not hot). They were a little baggy on first wearing, so I washed them inside out in the washing machine and dried them on low. They fluffed up nicely and shrunk ever-so-slightly. (Photos are from post-washing.)
PS: All the colors of Imagination
are back in stock if you want to make some wicked-cool winter socks of your own...
