The 3-Sock Pair

Finally - the famous 3-sock pair. I'll bet you were beginning to wonder whether they exist. Notice I laid them out in sort of a spoke pattern. Speaking of patterns, there's something else to notice - the foot is a different yarn than the cuffs. That is a design feature. My DH stopped by my LYS and surprised me with some yarn from the sale bin. He didn't realize that the reason these yarns were in there were that they were orphans and that you needed 2 50 gr balls for a pair, not one. Hence the 2 yarn sock was developed. So I guess these are the 2 yarn 3 sock pair!

Congratulations! I'm going to copy and paste your photo on the blog to show off your finished FO. And your prize will be in the mail soon (it's been a busy work week).

heh heh that is a silly pair - or whatever you call a group of three things that are the same. I usually end up knitting baby socks when I have orphans or leftovers.
