Taffy Stripes Socks

I finished the first sock from my custom spun and dyed yarn and have a good bit done on the second sock. I've realized that these socks remind me of taffy so I'm kind of calling them my Taffy Stripes Socks. When I finished the first sock, I had to roll some yarn off of the ball so I could start at the same place in the stripe sequence on the second sock and I think I did a pretty good job of it. I was afraid that I might make sock brothers rather than twins which would be a shame on this yarn since its so perfectly dyed, but I seem to have figured out how to make sock twins!

I also wanted to mention that over the next two weeks I might not be able to blog every weekday morning because of a combination of some personal stuff and Caleb's End of the School Year activities. I'll blog when I have a chance and when I have something to show you, but don't worry if you don't see fresh blog posts. Everything is great here, but life will be getting busy for us and blogging and knitting/spinning time will be minimal for a little bit.

What fun to see the yarn as real socks ! Makes me feel proud - sort of like seeing one of your children , all grown up and giving a speech in public and covering themselves ( herself ? itself ? ) in glory.Thanks for posting the picture,

Great socks! I like those colors!

BTW, there's a picture of the beginnings of my Moon Dance Stole on my blog now. It is a wonderful pattern!
