Can you see why this isn't the FO I was expecting?
Yes, I feel stupid.
These are intended as a gift, but I can't see presenting them as a pair. I could keep them for myself, but they aren't my colors. The only satisfactory solution I could come up with is to buy a second skein of the yarn and knit another mis-matched pair.
Though these aren't colors I wear, I do like them -- and that's a good thing since I'll be spending quite a bit more time with them!
