And off the needles. I finished my disappointing socks this week. The second sock is now much closer to the first in colour, and they actually look like a pair now. So I consider this somewhat of a success. But I certainly won't be buying any more of that yarn. Here's the original "pair" in the first photo. The completed socks are in the second photo - much more evenly matched although still not perfect.
I have enough yarn to make this a double - layer headband, so hopefully it will keep my ears warn on those chilly mornings. Once this is done, I plan to start something different. And hopefully with yarn that I like more than this :)
