Sassy Socks

Pattern: My Own

Yarn: Cascade Yarns - Sassy Stripes (75% new wool, 25% nylon; 50g; 200m) 2 skeins, color 769

Needles: US 1/2.25mm double points

Gauge: 9 sts = 1 inch

Info: This was the first time that I had ever used self striping yarn. The knit was enjoyable especially since both of the socks are virtually identical. I did nothing to aid in that process. All I did was start knitting from the middle of each of the skeins for each of the socks, the yarn did the rest. The only complaint that I have about the yarn is that though both of the skeins are from the same dye lot, the colors are off a bit, though just ever so slightly. One of the skeins is just a tad lighter in color than the other.
