another sock done

This morning I finished the first store sample Tofutsies sock. It's the one on the right. The one on the left is for myself from a different skein. Although, they are different colours, one would expect them to stripe similarly (this yarn isn't being advertised as hand dyed) but they don't. They're both knit with the same needles and the same number of stitches. I tried adding 4 sts to the sample sock but the colours just pooled differently. As you can see the colour runs on the right sock are much shorter than the left one.

I do like the sample sock (eventhough, I don't get to keep it). It reminds me of Monet's Waterlilies paintings. You know - blues & greens with little bursts of pink. It is one of my favourites.

I don't expect to get any more knitting done today. I have to make a chemo cap for a friend who's lost all her hair. Plus I need to get the binding sewn on the Coca Cola quilt.

I much prefer the striped sock to the spotted sock, but it's still pretty how it's pooling.

I've finished the wheat socks and Tony's blue striped socks. Photos tonight hopefully, if we get a moment to ourselves. (We can't use the camera until Geoff goes to bed, because he wants to grab it and use it himself.)

And I've started a pair of Austermann Step socks for me. One sock is almost done — I'm hoping to finish it on my commute home tonight. Again, photos tonight if all goes well.

I love the effect all the different tofutsies have. I have done 4 now. Your socks look great and I do love the watercolors. You have an artistic eye!
