|Hulk vs. Slytherin Socks|
1. My kitchner job worked! It's always questionable. I always, ALWAYS, get interrupted and I loose my place while mumbling, "Purl on, purl off, knit on, knit off...."
2. It only took me eleven months and two days to knit the pair of socks. The first sock was on the needles for eight months to the day, the second sock took four days. Eight months vs. four days. How does that happen??
3. It was New Year's! Of course I celebrated!
The socks are obviously not identical. I didn't even try to make them so. Each sock was knit from a different skein and the dyelots didn't match. One skein looked to contain much more green and purple (The Hulk) and the other green and gray (Slytherin.) The colors ended up matching much better than expected. About the only difference is that one sock has 'dirty white' grayish stripes and speckles in some of the stripes while the other sock has no speckles and the the 'dirty white' isn't all that dirty. It's more of an oatmeal color.
No matter what the socks look like, they fit and they're warm. Exactly what I was hoping for.
Happy New Year!
