You know how I hate having leftovers - so after finishing up the Morphology Cowl I decided that I would make socks out of the leftover yarn. I had to wait to cast on until I had finished my most recent basic toe up socks. I actually cast on a week and a half ago, but I didn't know what to call the project, so I couldn't create a project page. I thought about calling them "Fire and Ice Socks" but that just seemed a bit pretentious. I thought about calling them "Hot and Cold Socks" but that just seemed nonsensical, without being funny. I thought about calling them "Sprinkles and Shannanogins Socks" after the color names, but that was just too hard to say. Then, today while I was knitting during a break in a meeting I suddenly thought of Pippi Longstocking, and I knew I was close, but these were not going to be long stockings, they will probably turn out to be ankle socks, so I had to flip the name.
