What a Difference a Day Makes

My son's socks are done. I finished the second sock last night. I did run out of yarn just before I started the toe. Fortunately, the other ball of yarn I had, also had the same royal blue, so they look like a pair. The Royal Blue at the toe of the second sock is out of sequence with the other colors, but I think they turned out fine.

Today was the first day of school for the kids. I always stay home to see the kids off on the first day, so I had a little bit of extra time this morning. I started swatching my green Spirit Trail Fiberworks yarn for my Mystery socks. I really hope this yarn will give me an appropriate gauge for them. I didn't get very far on my gauge swatch this morning, but I'll be working on that some more this evening.

Last night, I pulled out the swift and ball winder and wound up one hank of the green and my Black Bunny Fibers, Pink Lemonade. I'll be using the Pink Lemonade for socks as part of the Hop Along.

These socks turned out so lovely, I really like the color choice - and how great that you didn't run into problems after being out of the yarn! Great job!
