Well, I started the week with these socks and I’ll finish the week with them. I actually finished the toe of the second sock yesterday but FO Thursday doesn’t have the same ring to it.
These socks do not match. Can you see why? Yes, the toes match up beautifully and I love that! But look at the rolled cuffs: I started on different colors. So one sock is longer than the other. Whatever. They’ll still wear just fine. Plus this might be my favorite sock yarn ever. It’s from Two Sisters Yarn Company and these colors are just so fun and happy. I used more yarn than I expected on these, about 54 grams, so I’ll have to get creative with my second pair.
I’m still working on my Vestigial sock and am in the middle of the gusset, but I’m planning my next sock as well. These will be for a good friend and here’s what I have in mind:
They’re even machine-washable! The multi-color is Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet. The green might be Madtosh?? Or maybe Treasure Goddess Treasured Toes? I hope it’s the latter because that’s also machine-washable.
This week I also finished watching Little Fires Everywhere and I highly recommend it. It’s different from the book in a lot of ways, and I’m not sure how I feel about the ending, but I was hooked. And now I need to read the book again to see exactly how it’s different!
Happy Friday, friends.
Love the socks but I am in love with the puppers!! It is so freakin cute when they rest their heads on their housemates.
Are you using a pattern? They are so pretty!
Thanks! They’re Rose City Rollers.
The socks look great! I hope to cast on a new pair of Two Sisters socks soon, as I have a bright rainbow pair to get working on. Your new socks will be great too.
Those socks look great! So cheerful 🙂
Those are really pretty! 🙂 Did you follow a pattern or did you just come up with them yourself? I like ankle socks. I guess you would start on the heel right away.
The pattern is Rose City Rollers and it’s free on Ravelry!
They’re so fabulous they don’t even need to match! I really want some little rainbow socks now, but I would have to buy the yarn. Hmmmmmm
I love the rainbow socks! Though I did wonder about the different cuff colors. 😉 I’ve done that before too, though. It happens.
