I just started making these socks a couple days ago. I've decided to knit them both at once, one row at a time. That way, I'll get them both finished and ready to wear at the same time!
I've had this self-striping yarn in my stash for a LONG time. It's nice to see it being used now. I'll use the leftovers to make baby socks for my little granddaughter, or I might decide to make a striped doll skirt. I'm sure she'll be playing with dolls sooner or later.
The yarn is called "Forever Jacquard" by Lane Cervinia Tollegno. It's an Italian sock yarn I got in an auction on eBay.
