Whiz Bangs

When we first saw this colorway, it looked like this....

Whizbangs!
4 oz. of superwash merino by Two if By Hand

Whiz bangs
After 1 bobbin, it looked like this...
sigh...
Spin 2 bobbins together and it looks like this....279 yds of sport/fingering weight.

Whiz Banging socks
After a while, it became these......Which didn't fit, but I kept knitting...

Then after a lot of denial....they looked like this again...
Frogged my Whiz Banging socks...

Then a few months later we saw this....

Then we saw this picture....

You can't see it but one of these toes had to have surgery...yeah I forgot with Wendy's toe up patterns, I often have to start my heels earlier than my usual 7.5 inches...that wasn't fun to pull out and reknit...

and heel pics!
