Before I got started on the last minute birthday sock, I had finished the first of Paisley’s sock.
It’s a bit of a franken-sock. After I got the leg done, I decided I wanted a contrasting heel, and I like the way it looked when you continued the stripes. When I switched back to the black, I knew I wanted to do the stripes on the toe. But if I did just the toe, you’d only get a stripe or two. I wanted MORE stripes! So…. as you can see, I started those stripes a lot sooner. And I love how it looks.
The second one is going to be the same, though I’m not worried about matching the stripes. I’m just going to pick up where I left off. After I finish the other birthday socks, of course (I’m close!)
