Encore!

Back in October I made these socks, the TTL Mystery Sock, and I made them rather large thinking my husband might like them. My chill-prone SIL (who has size 11 feet!) came to visit and needed something to keep her feet warm and these became hers. I made them from Knit One Crochet Too Ty-Dy Sock yarn (I had purchased two balls of this yarn, here.)

Well, now she wants another pair. Just like this pair. Same pattern, same yarn. Luckily, I have the second ball of yarn and here's where I am so far:


Like I said, big socks!

If I'm lucky, I may have some finished socks to show you soon!

Comments:
Do you like the yarn? I've only tried the Ty Dy cotton.
 
*ahem* Some of us think those are perfectly normal sized socks. :p
 
If I was you SIL, you'd be done by now - size 5 1/2 feet. Some of us think that is normal for feet!
 
And I LOVE that color! The autumn oranges, pinks, yellows. So pretty! Is it hard to go back and forth from big old sweater needles to teeny tiny sock needles?

I'm taking your advice from a while back and knitting my sweater sleeves at the same time to ensure sameness.
 
I especially love the second colorway--that's just gorgeous.
 
great socks... and is there something special with that yarn? Softer than others???
 
Well - my socks are a little bit shorter than your SIL - they do look great! Is this pattern available for sale on her site yet? If so, what is the name?
