You may remember a while ago that I made MLD (My Little Darling) a red and black quilt. She has a liking for the colours so I decided that, although she has already had her birthday present one month+ in advance, in the shape of a ticket to yet another not to be missed event , that she needed to have one or two things on the actual day. I am proud that I have been organised enough to complete these well on time. No fancy pattern just a “bog standard” toe-down sockand two different colours. I decided to go for the fraternal look – socks that appear to be an exact pair until you look more closely. So each sock was cast on at the cuff with a different colour. The cuff was k2 p2 rib in vertical stripes and then the socks mirrored each other absolutely everywhere EXCEPT that the black-toed one has an extra row of dots just before the toe.
