I thought I would post pics of the finished sock that I wrote about a few weeks back. Once again, the goal was to reproduce this antique sock as closely as possible, considering the materials on hand.
Seen in comparison, it is not bad. The size/gauge is pretty darn close. My white is way too bright. They use such tightly twisted single and double ply homespun wool( except for the commercial white cotton in the original) that it is still a little 'mysterious' how my very commercial, not tightly spun, yarn can come out at about the same gauge.
I am already on to a new 2 color sock( except for the ankle band which will be 3 color). Funny how much quicker it seems to go than the three colors.... I 'll post its picture in progress right after this post goes up
