Another One Bites the Dust

Another FO down: my months-old Sidewinders. Some of you might remember when I started these and knit the first sock-- way back in August! The half-finished second sock sat in my WIP box for ages, and tonight I decided I wasn't going to stand for it anymore.

These socks look and feel great. I messed up the grafting on the second sock, so it looks a bit bunchy on the back and is slightly shorter than the other one, but I was planning on wearing these with jeans most of the time, so it won't show. They fit my feet just about perfectly!

I can't remember what the yarn is. Some cheap knitted-tube sport weight from Wal-Mart. It was one of those times when I saw the pattern and needed to knit it NOW, you know? I actually couldn't be happier with the yarn. It has a nice smooth texture, and feels cool to the touch--perfect for hot Florida weather.

I love the marbled-bowling-ball colour. I've never seen a pair of sidewinders I liked until these ones.

Thanks, Shan! I have noticed that short-color-repeat yarns look best with Sidewinders. I'm not much of a fan of the wide vertical stripes myself.

Wow, they look so unusual - I love the way the stripes run - it looks almost like water.....
