Current SIP (Socks In Progress)
More yummy 2ply Aussie Merino from Marta's Yarns. I'm using two strands (a nearly solid red one and a variegated green one) so I'm knitting with 4ply (standard sock yarn weight) on 2.25mm bamboo needles.
Anyone recognise the pattern?

That yarn is a gorgeous colour - but 2 ply??? Must be like knitting with sewing thread LOL.By Sandra, on 24 June, 2006
Hi Sandra. I'm actually double stranding it, so I'm using 4ply.By OzKnitter, on 24 June, 2006
I can't begin to imagine how long it would take me to knit 2ply socks or how thin the needles would have to be! ACK!
Lovely yarn.. need to go to marta's soon! Is this pattern from knitting vintage socks from nancy bush ?By shanwen, on 25 June, 2006
What a pretty colorway!By Lynda, on 26 June, 2006
Thanks Shanwen and Lynda. Yes, it's another pair of "Gentleman's Plain Winter socks" from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks (the blue/purple pair I recently finished).By OzKnitter, on 30 June, 2006
These socks aren't for me though. I was asked to knit these "exactly like those (the blue/purple ones)" so I am.
