My friend Allyson's birthday is next week and these are for her fresh of the needles and blocking, as you can tell. I have to say that with this particular color way of Zauberball Crazy there doesn’t seem to be a way to get a pair of socks out of one skein that look even remotely alike. I’m not the kind of knitter that requires both socks to be identical - I eyeball number of rows and generally with the self-striping stuff I just divide the skein in half and use the cut end on both halves as my starting point and pretty much the socks look enough alike to be a pair but not so with Zauberball. I can’t see any way I could have made two socks look even similar with one skein of this yarn. Allyson will love them - she likes to think she has a funky side and I assist whenever I can.
I suppose if I ever want to knit another pair of sock from this yarn I'll have to buy two skeins - a mere $45. investment for a pair of socks (technically two pair, I guess). Sadly I can see myself doing this.
