Dr. Seuss Socks
At long last some mindless fun! And for you dear readers,some knitting content. Keeping with the colors of Project Spectrum, I chose colors to match one of my favorites, The Dr.Seuss Sleep Book. Sadly my childhood copy burned up with everything else, but it is etched in my mind and I begin yawning just thinking of it! My yarn choice, which reflects the final pages, is the pleasing Lang sock yarn that has the little spools of heel&toe yarn stuffed inside, like the prize in crackerjacks. I love the turquoise and slate gray in odd combination. I cast on 56 sts on size 2 needles since I have such skinny ankles. I usually knit both socks at the same time because I hate making the 2nd one of anything...but I can't even find a whole set of matching #2's let alone 2 sets.
