It's just as funny looking as the first sock was off the blocker! I think it's a combination of the ribbing and the twisted stitches used for the top of the foot being a different gauge from the stockinette used for the sole. As the blocker shows, it won't affect wear, just in-progress blog photos. Also, I'm getting a completely different pooling pattern on this second sock, which is knit from the same ball of yarn as the first, in the same direction. I expected pooling with this yarn, so I'm not upset, but it's weird how this kind of thing can happen. One of the mysteries of knitting I suppose.
I've worked the heel turn on this second sock and begun to work my way up the leg. I hope to get this one finished and begin on my last pair of socks for Loopy Academy over the weekend. I guess I need to finalize which pattern I'm using!
