FO: A Single Sock

 Remember this post about a cure for second-sock syndrome?  It turns out that my friend, who originally inspired the post by telling me about her single sock, was able to find a home for her lone sock within her own family.  Isn't it funny how life works out sometimes?

Anyway, I still wanted to send a single sock to K2Tog for their single sock collection for veterans.  I finished it up and washed it before Thanksgiving so it could air-dry while I was gone.  Here it is ready to go, the first completed sock in my self-imposed sock club:

 I used the Priscilla's Dream Sock pattern to figure out how many stitches to cast on for a men's large, and knit it toe-up from a provisional cast-on to make it seamless.  Further info, including K2Tog's address is here on Ravelry.

I need to focus on gift-knitting now, but I can't live without some mindless knitting to take with me when I'm driving to school, orthodontist appts., etc., so I went ahead and wound the leftover yarn into 2 balls for a pair of footies.  My plan is to see if I can get the footies to match by starting each one in the same place in the color pattern.  I'll let you know how it works out.

Meanwhile, I heard back from my contest winners so I'm off to the post office with the prizes, as well as my single sock!


  1. I'm sure the Veteran will appreciate the warm sock. It's very nice.
