What Green Sock?

I changed a few things. I was working on the green sock from yesterday's post and about halfway through the heel flap I realized I hadn't centered the design the right way. I was planning on doing the foot in K2, P2 rib instead of the Harris Tweed pattern and I hadn't put the heel in the right place to do this. I could have just frogged the heel flap, but I decided I would just start over with needles a bit larger - the sock was pretty tight also. So, off to the frog pond it went. I didn't feel like restarting it immediately, so I pulled out some new sock yarn and started a completely different pair. This is Lorna's Laces in Bittersweet on size 0's. The pattern is an eyelet rib that's my own variation of something I found in a stitch dictionary. The yarn weight and colors are much more appropriate to the current weather than the green handspun. I think in a few weeks when the season starts to change, I'll get back on the green socks. Its a good thing I've got a large sock yarn stash!

One can never have too large a sock yarn stash. I know I have had to change sock projects just as fast. Your new sock looks great :)

Yummy! I've been struggling with this insane urge to knit pink socks. It's insane because I've never been a pink person. Not since I was 6 years old.
