Tar Island Socks

Yarns:  MC:  Cascade Heritage, colorway 5601 - Black and CC: Fortissima Socka, colorway 1056 - Gray.
Pattern:  My own pattern.
Needles:  #1 (2.25mm) dpns
Comments:  These socks were made with bits of yarn that remain from former projects.  The Cascade yarn knits up nicely and makes a soft fabric.
If I made these again, I would add another color for interest, as they are a bit bland.  However, they go with quite a few items in my wardrobe, including those dusty old skates. Uffda! (Norwegian for good grief, or something like that).  Winter is coming, but the best thing about it is wearing hand knit socks!

Perfect for the skates! I am impressed, again.
