Six solitary socks searching for solemates...
Ummmm... I think these guys need a membership in match.com for socks! LOL It seem that some one has a bit of a problem with commitment. Now, I'm not pointing fingers, but I probably should. And in keeping with the current societal situation of not accepting blame for anything, I'm putting the burden on the yarn. It is just too darn pretty! I can't help that my head is turned by the newest pretty skein - its not my fault! Yeah, I'm not buying that excuse either.
So lets get a profile on this cast of characters. First we have two lovely patterned socks each knit with Serenity yarn from Joanns. The pink one is a No purl Monkey sock and the green one is a Sunday Swing sock. If you click on the pattern names it will take you to the links for the patterns, they are both free.
Next we have a pair of cousins. The earth tone one on the left is Regia Kaffe Fasset Design Line yarn. The yellow one is knit with Blue Moon Socks that Rock in the Lemonmellow colorway. They were both knit from the Carolina pattern, another free one you can find here.
And last but not least we have a lovely turquoise blue plain vanilla sock knit with DROPS Fabel in the 677p colorway which is keeping company with a olive green and pink sock of mysterious origins as I have no clue what yarn this is.
Now while you are shaking your head and thinking that is a lot of mateless socks, I have to inform you that the situation is actually even worse than it appears here. I know for a fact there are several more single solitary socks hiding out in my storage room in their own little ziploc bags who are too shy to show their faces, along with knitter who seems to has absolutely no shame or guilt in producing more UFOs. Remember what I said a couple of weeks ago? I believe that it is important for your creativity to have UFOs, and I excel at producing them. I didn't tell you a story - LOL!
So for next week I am challenging myself to find/knit a mate for just one of these solitary socks. Which one would you pick? Right now I'm kinda smitten with that DROPS Fabel blue one. It is the easiest pattern and I love the colors and stripe-yness. Although that mysterious green and pink one has quite the siren call too. And there is always the chance that another skein could catch my eye... it has happened before... lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of times!
