It is really nice to have a smaller, more portable project in my bag these days. I'm not much a of a sock knitter. I've always had too many other things I wanted to make, but I'm collecting quite a bit of skein left-overs and socks do seem like the perfect answer to what to do with all of those bits.
These are just a self-striping yarn I forgot I had until recently when I decided I wanted to do the Sock-long on Kollabora and had to dig up some sock yarn from a box in the garage. The stripes are detracting from the texture of the pattern, but I'm so happy to be using old stash, I don't care. Besides, it has a rustic look that I like.
Though my gauge is right and I'm knitting on 0s, they seem like they may be too big for me. I'm too far in to rip out and redo them, so if they don't fit someone will be getting socks for Chirstmas.
