This wooly little joke shook me from my grouchiness. I knit both heels of the striped socks from the same skein, hence the lopsided balls. (Hmm, I wonder what wierdos will hit the site now?) I take no credit, Boy thought of the yarnman after I made the dirtier joke.
The striped socks look pretty snazzy. They're too small for me, so they should fit my dad's girlfriend perfectly. I've already started swatching the pink cotton for Jen's socks with the rosewoods my excellent secret pal Jen sent, but I haven't picked a pattern yet. I guess I'll let the gauge decide.
