The Vesper Aquamelon socks are finished. I started the first sock three days before New Year's Eve and cast off at 10 minutes to midnight. My intention was for the first sock of the pair to be the last FO of 2006, and the second sock to be the first FO of 2007. Didn't quite work that way as the last 10 rows of this sock waited almost a month to get finished. Whoops!
Pattern: My own basic 66 stitch sock recipe with 2x2 ribbed cuffs, Eye of Partridge heels and the Star Toe of 3 Points from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: Vesper Sock Yarn in the Aquamelon colourway.
Needles: Size 1 US Inox DPNs
Started: December 29th, 2006
Finished: February 15th, 2007
Total cost: $23 for the yarn
Final Verdict: I always take my time to make sure that I cast on at the exact same point in the colour repeat so that the stripes will match up perfectly. I did that with this pair, but I forgot that I altered the toe so that two red stripes finished on the first one. I only noticed when I was editing the pictures, so I'm pretty sure I'm not going to go back and reknit the second one to match. They can remain fraternal twins, I'm ok with that.
