Well, I have referred to the Auxiliary Opal sock in a few postings. I tried it on yesterday, and discovered it was really close to the toe. So I decided to finish the sock. Ta da! This is something I got in a trade, and I think it is Southwest? Anyway, it is neat, and I think I have started the second sock close enough for matching stripes, rather serendipitously. Now I have three second socks going. This is another great place for photography, under a translucent patio roof which diffuses the light nicely.
When I took the last sock photo, I had to borrow DH’s cotton handkerchief to dry the condensation off the lens when I went outside.
