Waffle Socks Done!

A finished pair of socks! These are handdyed, handspun, and handknitted. I used a GCNI/Yearling Mohair blend roving (85/15) and spun up a two ply. I knit them on US Size 1's (2.25mm) at 7.5 spi. I used the stitch pattern from Blueberry Waffle Socks worked in my own gauge. Personally, I love the mis-matched stripeyness!

My next socks will be for my Sockapalooza Pal. I have to pick a pattern for her yarn.

Oooh, they turned out very pretty!

I think it's kind of cute when socks don't match up perfectly.

I'll never forget one time I had made a pair of socks out of green and white Lorna's Laces. I was proudly strutting around the house in them and Adam's grandmother said "You messed up. They don't match." I couldn't get her to understand that that's the beauty of handdyed yarn - it's not going to match. That's why I love them!

I agree with Carrie, I love that they are obviously a pair, but they are different. Very cool. The best part is that you get something different every time! Mindy

Ooooo, they look so soft & spongy. And I also love the mismatched striping. Nice.

Cute! I have to admit, when I looked at the picture, my first thought was, "Why did she put that horrible red cuff on those pretty socks?!" I think it's time to see the eye doc again...

Those are the prettiest socks I've seen in a long time, and I love that the stripes don't exactly match. The colors are gorgeous!

I know I already commented once, but I wanted to point out something:

Did you realize that the top half of one sock was darker, while the bottom half of the other sock was darker? Extra cute!

They are very nice and I like the mis-matchyness too.

What spinning wheel do you use?... I'm looking at getting one later this year.

someone once told me that mismatched stripes make socks look very artsy and i think it's so true. especially with your socks. and how wonderful is it that these socks are completely and utterly your creation?

I agree with Pacalaga ... I saw the socks and said "YIKES!! Why the ugly red cuffs?" I guess I need MY eyes checked, too! Lovely socks ... and, hey, I Knew that Finn wasn't eating the sock .. first of all, you wouldn't let him if he tried, but secondly, he's a GOLDEN. My Golden is as sweet and gentle - she's nearly 12 and likes to warm my feet when I'm spinning.

Blessings
