These socks DO rock!

Some of the BeeGees (my Thursday night knitting group) went to Stitches Midwest in Chicago last month. I was not able to go because it was the same weekend of the 3-Day Walk. Tamara so graciously offered to bring me back some Socks That Rock sock yarn. I went to the website, picked out some colorways that I liked, and gave her the list. When she came back, she had one of the colorways I had picked out, but she also had this one, which I fell in love with. I started these socks about 2 weeks ago and finished them up Sunday evening.



I used Queen Kahuna's method, added a slip stitch underneath the heel as well as up the back of the heel. The cuff and top of the foot are done in a 2 x 2 twisted rib. It was a little fussy, but I love how they turned out. So far this is the best fitting pair of socks I've made. I always seem to make them a little too big. I used a size 1 needle this time and they are a nice thick, warm sock. I am looking forward to wearing them a lot this winter!

Psychedelic socks! I just love how the mixture of colors. Very impressive, actually.

Colors are well blended with each other. I am not knitter but I love the products of knitting, I think those socks are hard to make.
