This might perhaps amuse

I will add to the gallery of Waving Lace socks with a very special pair:

These were knit three years ago, when the pattern came out in the magazine. They were my first pair of socks that actually fit well, and they have been wearing strong all these years.

Now, you might wonder, why is half of one sock black? Let's just say I was a college student, and I was poor, so I was buying sock yarn on eBay. I had no idea that one 50g skein does not make a pair of socks... so I improvised :)

That's hilarious!! Thanks for the laugh. The best part is how well-loved they are.

Good for you! I've run into the same problem several times, and I had two skeins of yarn.
