Third time lucky!

I wrote in a previous post about my sockpalooza sox. Well all did not go to plan...

The first pair was too small and I sent them to a friend in Brooklyn NY.

The second pair was coming along great,I had managed to get it to work out that they would be identical twin sox, then the yarn threw me, an extra pink piece of yarn mysteriously appeared mid way down the leg part of the sock. As I was knitting the second sock when I was away for the weekend and I didn't have the first one with me, I didn't realise the problem till I came home and by this point it was too late, both sox were finished. I know I could send a pair of fraternal sox to my sockpalooza pal, but I'm a perfectionist and no way can I do that. They are too small for me, but I think I will give them to my mum to wear when she goes walking.

You can see the discrepancy better in this picture.

THIRD TIME LUCKY........................

Here are the final sox that I have knitted for my sockpal. I hope she likes them.

They have a lacy top and are knitted from Opal sock yarn...75% superwash virgin wool and 25% polyamide.
They are identical twins.

Heck, all three pairs are great, but that final pair is just gorgeous. I love the colour combinations. You have one very lucky pal!
