Calvin & Ripple

I finished these late last year. A knitalong with the Socks that Rawk group on Ravelry. Designed by the wonderful Turtlegirl :0) and named after her gorgeous kitties. The yarn is a socks that rock rare gem in a brown, ginger, cream and green. I think it's a great cat-like colour for these kitty inspired socks.

Here's Calvin's slip-stitch pattern up close.... And Ripple's, erm, ripple stitch pattern......

And the two of them, side by side.

I won't say who my favourite is, but I do enjoy wearing them both a lot. And I love the matchy-and-yet-not concept.

Pattern: Calvin & Ripple socks by Cristi Brockway aka Turtlegirl

Yarn: Socks That Rock Mediumweight Rare Gem

Very nice! And I think you summed up the cats themselves with that matchy-and-yet-not concept comment!
