And yes, those are apparently two different dye lots of the same yarn. If I get frustrated, I’ll swap around ankle-height and make them sort of match (or buy a third ball of yarn and do stripes).
I tried the single circ method (12″ circs, because I have big feet and those work), and the DPN method which was not as much fun, and magic loop just makes me feel loopy. Two circs, with the socks divided half on each (front of sock A and front of sock B on one circ, back of socks on other circ) is much nicer.
I love the gray hair in front. I love that it sparkles in pictures and shows actual texture in my hair. This is the first black-and-white I’ve ever taken that didn’t just show a huge dark mass for my hair. I think it looks quirky in that one little spot, and I don’t think I’ll ever dye my hair again.
