My favourite fabric.
My favourite colour.
A pair of socks.
Well, two socks anyway:
Sock 1: Snicket Sock
Pattern: Snicket Socks (formerly on Magknits, now only to be found via the wayback machine with no pictures or somewhere on ravelry if they've loaded that pattern up there yet)
Yarn: Bearfoot luxury sock yarn from Yarns Online (she's discontinued the line), originally white but handdyed by me.
Comments: I love everything about this sock except how massive it makes my foot look. So, vanity vetoed a second snicket sock.
Instead, I made
Sock 2: Leyburn Sock
Pattern: Leyburn sock (rav link) (blog link). Spied on the blog of one of my favourite people, Meg. I hope she doesn't mind the rip-off.
I knit this sock on a slightly smaller needle, so it's a bit snugger. Tres fantastique.
I completely don't care if they're not identical twins, or sisters even. Because, mostly, they're going to be paired with these.
And since they look so ugly and loony anyway, mismatched socks kind of sets them off perfectly.
(* The only thing worth lamenting in the whole sordid story. And even then, only a little. )
