They make a pair.
Not exactly alike, in terms of the colorway, and not exactly alike in ways I do not care to point out. They are Pleasantly Fraternal, which is good since they're on their way to Mr. Celia's brother.
Pleasantly Fraternal Socks
The pattern: Michele Wyman's Twinkle Toes Socks for kids and adults, which I committed to memory in 2001.
The yarn: Meilenweit Mega Boots Stretch (70% wool 23% nylon 7% elite), colorway #701
Cast on: around Thanksgiving
Cast off: January 29, 2006!
I was so happy, I cast on for this.
Well, actually I cast on on Saturday night, but all I had left to do was Kitchener the toes. And you know the rules: friends don't let friends Kitchener drunk. That would just be reckless.
