If I were a Gamblin' Gal.....

I'd try to make the 2nd sock just like the first. But, I'm not, and I won't.

While the pattern called for 50 gr of each color, I fear that I do not have enough gray to make the 2nd sock. I have some reminents of the gray from a different dye lot, but it is too far from a match to be satisfactory. So, I am going to reverse the colors - Sock #2 will have tan as the main color.

Hope it doesn't look too odd. Wish me luck....

I love the pattern. I think it would be great to reverse for the other sock. Fun and unique!

I love your memory lane socks as well. I hope I will be as pleased 16 years from now.

Blessings,
Julie

Very lovely socks! I also love your sock blockers. Where did you get them? I saw some on ebay like that and was debating about getting some...
