Just in time for the end of Socktober, I finished the Dublin Bay Strange Little Mama Socktoberfest Vesper Socks (bit of a mouthful, eh?)
Pattern: (pdf warning) the Dublin Bay socks from Mossy Cottage
Yarn: Vesper Sock Yarn in the Strange Little Mama colourway. How do you get yarn named after you? So cool.
Needles: Size 1 US Inox DPNs
Modifications: The first sock was knit with the one by one ribbed cuff. When I started turning the heel I decided I didn't like it, so I knit the second sock with a two by two rib. I like it much better, even though it makes the socks fraternal rather than identical.
Started: October 1st
Finished: October 26th, 6 days behind schedule. I may have been distracted by Clapotis along the way.
Total cost: $23 for the yarn
Final Verdict: I took my time making sure the stripes would line up the same so I get a kick out of the fact that the cuffs don't match.
