Here Fishy, Fishy Socks are complete!

You can see the tops of the socks are matchy, matchy for awhile...

But then the bottom portion of the socks are very different... almost like two different balls of yarn!

Overall, I am pretty happy with these socks. They are modeled by me in this photo, but I made them for someone with larger, wider feet than myself.

If I make something with Crazy Zauberball yarn in the future, I might buy two balls if I am wanting to make the socks identical to one another.  The pattern repeats in the yarn are a bit random (much like the Mini-Moochi yarn). 

I was a good girl and did not cast on anything new until I finished these socks (well, I did start a beaded bag the other day... but that did not count as starting a new project because it entailed me frogging a beaded scarf which was already in progress... ).  But this weekend I told myself to not start anything new until these socks were complete). 

As a reward to myself (ha, ha!), I started a new project last night.  A wrap called "Saroyan" in Berroco Comfort Chunky Yarn in an "Oat" color.  Oh my goodness!!! I am in love with this pattern.  Click HERE if you'd like to see the pattern.  As I am knitting away, I keep thinking of other yarn in my stash which would also look beautiful in this pattern. Such a fun knit... it's difficult to put down.  I'll post about the Saroyan wrap another day.  For now, I am too busy knitting to be blogging!
