But they definitely do not match. This is a line from a sock book I read. I didn't realize how prescient it would be.
Some time ago I had knit up a sock, and then put it away for some reason. It was very simple. A blue edge line, brown sock, with a blue heel and toe.
Why I put it up, I don't recall, which tells you how long ago it was. I happened to be digging about for some oddball thing, and found the unfinished SECOND sock. I still had the first one packed safely away. (And, amazingly, I knew where it was!)
So, I decided, I should finish this sock. I have one, finish the other, yet a new pair for my feet... Then I made a mistake. I did not go look at the first sock. It was a simple blue and brown sock, I could knit from memory... I remembered that I was out of the blue yarn, so I substituted a blue that was as close as I could get. It doesn't match completely, but it's not bad.
Then when I finished, I dug out the first sock.
Oh. Oh! Uh, oh...
So, note to self: do not attempt to knit second sock from memory of stored sock. Fortune would have it, I have lots of socks I make one of, I refer to them as 'Sock Onesies', so these will fit right in...
But I still think the next time I'd better check.
(I would have had this blog up on Sunday, but I was having trouble uploading the picture. Odd...)
