 Take5, take 2

I finished another pair of socks using the Take5 method for sock yarn remnants.  There are twenty-four differently-colored stripes of all sorts of sock yarns, with Kroy Sock in Glen Check for the ribbing, heels, and toes. 
Because all of the yarn for this pair was left over from other socks, my yardage was limited.  I was afraid that I was going to run out of the Kroy Sock before I could finish the toes, so I engaged in the time-honored knitter's trick of knitting as fast as I could; I suppose in the hope that it would help me to finish before I ran out of yarn.  : D  It worked...I finished the toes with just a few yards to spare!
Knit 8, purl 1 rib for the body of the socks, EOP heel flap, Dutch heel...I love these socks!

This is another pair from the Big Bag O' Sock Yarn, and yet one more where I had long, unbroken lengths of yarn and could make two socks without having to join any ends together.  The pattern runs top to bottom in one sock, and bottom to top in the other.  This color was one of the biggest lots in the bag, and I have plenty left to knit at least two or three more pair of socks.

It was cold and blustery here today, perhaps a foreshadowing of the weather that Hurricane Sandy has sent our way.  There is snow tonight in the mountains of North Carolina, where a group of my motorcycling friends have gathered to spend a week riding together.  I hope that the weather wll improve for the rest of the week.
