A Tale of Two Socks

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us….”

~Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

These socks. They have been in progress for almost a year now. They have been through Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, and now into Spring again. They are finally done!

Fraternal Slytherin Socks

Yarn: 1/2 ball each of Knit Picks Stroll in Rainforest Heather and Deborah Norville Serenity Sock in Charcoal

Needles: US 1/2.25 mm

Method: 4-row stripes. Started toe-up on magic loop. I didn’t like this method, so I switched to DPNs. Fish Lips Kiss Heel. A bit of trial and error was necessary to ensure good cuff fit (meaning that some ripping and reknitting were involved).
