The Urban Rattlesnake Socks are finished . . . and they have toes.
Whilst musing over the choice between blue and white yarn for the toes, I was wearing these socks, which I had knit from some Lang fake isle yarn in sundry shades of red. "Red, oh (went the thought process), the same as the Rattlesnake socks."
And then I remembered that Lang sock yarn typically comes with a little spool of matching thread to use as a reinforcer for the heels and toes. And I still had lots left. Too thin by itself, but . . .
Here's a close shot of the little toe cap. Pretty nifty, huh? I did a modified round toe on these socks, and there was enough of the original yarn left to get through two sets of decreases before it expired completely.
