Yeah, I'm manic and keep casting on new projects. But this one's happy and fun and I'm learning something new!
"But Lilith, it's your standard toe-up, short-row sock," you say... or would say if you were one of the voices in my head.
"Look again," I say,"for things are not always what they seem!" And then I pull out...
THE SECOND SOCK!!!
That's right, two socks at once on one set of DPNs! Shiny, eh? It's very much like double-knitting. Half of the stitches are for sock #1, the other half for sock #2.
On the near needle, the purple stitches are sock #1 (with the knit side showing) and the yellow-to-blue stitches are for sock #2 (with the purl side showing).
Why am I doing this? Several reasons:
a. I wanted to try a new skill, and this is a pretty nifty one.
II. I love making socks.
3. I am in love with this yarn. It's the Ashabee's Fiber Oasis superwash merino in the Clown Wig colorway that I got in Portland.
☺. Anything that helps avoid Second Sock Syndrome has to be good, right?
V. I had a set of #0 DPNs lying around with nothing on them.
So yeah. Clown socks! Yay!
