I wasn't trying for identical.
Which is a good thing, as I'd have been disappointed. But I love, love, love these socks! SO comfy. I want to wear them all the time, despite the heat. Finished in 1 week, using Cascade Fixation and US size #2 dpns. April, sorry, but I'm starting to actually.. LIKE.. knitting with Fixation. Wacky.
There was a bunch of yarn left, because I'd made the legs shorter than trek's pattern, so I decided to make some newborn socks. I put together a pretty simple pattern which I'll try to get posted soon. The only cute tricks are that I put a little ribbing under the foot to help the sock stay on, and that I did a modified round toe using garter stitch.
Sorry about the blurry picture, but aren't they irresistible? Now I just need to find someone who just had a baby.
I'm making progress on the Jo Sharp sofa cushion, but there just isn't much to see. It's miles of endless booboos. I knit 1 row, I rip out 2/3 of the row and fix it. I don't know how I can make so many mistakes with such a simple pattern, but I do.
I started some secret yarnination tonight! If all goes well, you can see it in a week :-)
