Lornas_laces_motherlode_socks

Pattern: My own -- 60 stitches
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd sock in Mother Lode (74)
Needles: US 2 Brittany Birch dp's 5"
Re-started: 2/15/04
Finished:3/4/04

As you can see, there is more weirdness going on here. I completed all of the left hand sock and most of the right one with the first skein. I'm sure you can see where skein #2 began. Although these were from the same dyelot, they are very different. There are colors in skein 2 that don't even appear in the first skein! I want to stress that these were older skeins of Lorna's and were purchased before the current owner took over. I saw what MotherLode looks like now when I was at ThreadBear this weekend and it is so much more vibrant! I was a little disappointed that I made these socks with the older stuff. But I love them anyway and they are very soft. Can't really feel bad about that, can I?
