Scarborough Four

It usually happens that feet come in pairs. This leads to the common occurance of socks coming in pairs also (convenient that way, huh?) When you knit two pairs of socks, you must knit four socks. When they are all the same design, by the time you get to the fourth sock, you can knit without the chart. Kinda makes the knitting go faster, but I'm to the point that I'd really like to knit a brainless kind of sock right now. I'm almost done with the leg of the fourth Scarborough Fair sock and the foot moves pretty quickly, so hopefully I'll be working on brainless socks soon!

By the way, for some reason the spell checker on my blog isn't doing any actual checking of the spelling (kinda defeats the purpose of having the thing in the first place). I apologize for any misspellings, as I can't spell worth a flip on a good day, and since I tend to blog first thing in the morning, well, it isn't pretty. I'll keep pushing the button and hoping that someday it will check the spelling again, but in the meantime, I'll try to stick to words that are easy to spell.

I think I would be pretty tired of any pattern by the fourth sock, unless of course a few months had passed in between knitted the first and second pair. It is a very pretty sock!

As long as you keep blogging you can misspell the words whichever way you like. You're blog and your writing and knitting brightens my dull days at the office. So thank you, Melanie!

It is a very pretty sock and I have
purchased the pattern. Maybe you
can tell us on the blog why you
are knitting two pair of socks?
Are they the same color? If we
want an answer, do we leave our
e-mail address in the comment box?

I just love the color you choose for the socks. The pattern is very pretty too!

I'm on my third sock of the same pattern (Waterloose socks). It is going faster now and I'm frogging back less and less!

Practice does make (almost) perfect!

I thought it was just me that spellcheck wasn't working for! Good to know I haven't lost it. The pattern is really lovely! I am still a sock "beginner" even after a year but I am going to break out and try some new patterns. It's about time after a year using the same pattern.

Curious...what DPNs are using...I love the point on them and the size to the sock. Thanks for the beauty of a pink sock.
