Number 2 Times 2

equals either two or three this morning.

Sock #1 is now joined by its mate, a finally finished pair. (Is this one item or two?)

The yarn and Sock#1 are dusty as they were in hibernation since January.

Sock #1 was cast on October 12, 2007 and finished December 30, 2007. Its mate was started immediately on December 30, 2007 then put into hibernation as by then I was already looking for Spring!

The pair is Trekking XXL, color 183 from Yarn Elf. They were knit on 1 1/2's and 0 doublepoints and 0 12" circulars. Currently they are taking their first soak to join other handknits drying on the upstairs hall radiator.

Number 2 is clue number two of the Mystery knit. Here pictured on the rhododendron in its fall coloration, a stitch pattern commonly used in ganseys is in plain orange to show patterning. This could be very useful in certain applications of the solved mystery.

So, Sock #2 is finished to complete the singular unit pair and Clue #2 is shown. Does #2 X 2 equal two or three?

How about one project with two parts. I thought a pair was two when I went to school.

Socks look nice, another project well done.

No chance of winter time blues with your mystery project. The clors blend well and the orange shows off hte design well.
