The first eight pairs: now I'm working on #25
"Sporty Shorty" socks w/ yarn from earlier pairs.
This is Cascade 220 "Isle of Sky", a discontinued hand-painted yarn I would have bought more of if it had been available. I have another of the handpainted ones, in a light blue/lavender/aqua combination, not yet photographed as socks, and its leftover it going to be striped with plain turquoise. I haven't yet used the "Isle of Sky" leftovers in shorties.
After making three pairs of the shorties, I decided to commit yarn to making full-height (5 inches of ribbed cuff) socks with stripes. This is in Ella rae Classic, the red I like best so far and a royal blue. The blue were not leftovers, so I'm not sure I've got enough of it left for a full pair of royal blue socks. If necessary, they may have red toes. The Isle of Sky socks and the red/blue were both knitted last year, in the second year of sock-knitting. I make my socks with "anatomical" toes--mine are long and pointy, and a left and right sock are as much more comfortable as having left and right shoes. The first socks are beginning to wear out; they last about 100 wearings, on average. I need to learn to darn.
