purple Fair Isle socks

Mismatched socks! I made the first one, and didn't like the top of the foot and the toe. I made the second one differently, then never got around to fixing the first one. Finally I gave up, sewed in the loose ends of yarn, and suddenly they are done and wearable.

 

How long did they sit without those four ends of yarn woven in? About 10 years!
