I knew the socks I knit with this yarn would be fraternal no matter what I did. You see when I bought the yarn on clearance there were only 2 skeins left and I just loved the colors. I broke a major knitting rule though. I bought skeins with different lot numbers. I could even see that they were different. But I didn’t care and I still don’t. They are just socks after all and socks should be fun and not quite matching socks wear just as well as matching ones. When I picked out this pattern I was drawn to it partly because it has you create two different socks, one where the stitches cross to the left and one where they cross to the right. i figured if the socks weren’t going to match color wise having them not match stitch wise would be just icing on the cake so to speak.
The pattern is Down The Rabbit-Hole by Purrlescent. The yarn is Loops & Threads Luxury Sock in balloons. Sorry about the out of focus phone photo. I am out of batteries for my camera and forgot to pick them up when I was at the store yesterday. Actually we’re out of a lot of things at this point and I keep forgetting to make a list.
