one is the loneliest number

so i had to immediately cast on the mate for this lonely sock:

this is one half of a pair of socks using the yankee knitter basic socks pattern . i'm using trekking xxl sock yarn and some fun-lovin' brittany birch size 2 dpns.

sock on!

I love all these gorgeous colours, I'm not surprised you cast on for another!

It looks great! And I think the color is very familiar - is your Trekking color #100? Same color I'm using :-)

Hi Shelby! Yup, indeed, it is #100!

Very nice! I'm using Trekking Crazy XXL and I've got US1 and US2.5 dpn's - any advice (obviously knitting another guage swatch is in my future)? With the 2.5's the fabric just seemed a bit too "open".

hi laura! the only advice i can offer is that i knitted rather tightly. i used size 2 dpns and didn't let the yarn come up for air once! i hope this helps, and good luck! can't wait to see your socks!
