Pattern: Donyale Socks, by Black Dog Designs
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in Tizano red
Needles: size 1
Quite obviously, these socks aren't on target. The first one I knit (started before Thanksgiving) it too tight and too short. The other one is almost too lose but I think the length is perfect. Both legs have the same number of pattern repeats. oh, and I increased the CO number to 65 to accommodate my large-ish feet.
This odd couple is not the pattern's fault. The pattern is beautiful and easy to memorize. I think I must have been stressed out while knitting the first sock. The yarn is also beautiful - too beautiful to waste on this little disaster.
