Pair #6 Is For A Special Friend

My friend Bob was visiting and saw me knitting a sock. He asked me to knit him a pair. Sure, I said. What color? My heart skipped a beat when he said “black”. I remember a tip I got from an experienced knitter in my group. She said, when you’re learning something new, a stitch, a technique, whatever, do not use a dark colored yarn. 

So, black yarn on size 2 needles scared me. My knitting buddies said ” just say no”. I knew I couldn’t do that. This was for my good friend Bob. Anyway, I love to challenge myself. 

My other half and I I went out on a Sunday to buy some yarn. We went to Holda Fiber Arts located at 4468 Middle Country Rd in Calverton. I wound up buying a gray wool yarn that Jen (the proprietor) dyed herself. I also picked up Regia’s pairfect sock yarn. That’s the yarn that guarantees both socks will knit up identically. Cannot wait to use it. Sheep to sweater and everything in between. 

Here they are. 

This will be my first time using Eucalan
