Finally, this weather makes me feel inclined to knitting. While a hat was what brought me back in the game after a summer hiatus (pictures forthcoming), it’s these neon socks that are solidifying my dance, again, with my favorite fiber craft.
Yet another pair of after-thought heel socks for the doc, who appreciates and wears my socks, daily, albeit more now, in this new, non-desert climate of ours. I love the way the after thought heel looks and takes shape; if you are like me and are inclined to contrasting toe and heel colors, this is the best method for making it look seamless.
These are knit up with Regia Fluormania Color 4-Ply in the Rainbow colorway. It’s a knockout. I’ve never seen anything so bright in my life. But using some leftover bits of Malabrigo Sock in Cote D’Azure, really helped break some of the wow and added a nice pop–the neon lends itself nicely against the darker navy and it reminds me of ski socks.
Quite happy with the way they are turning out; just one more to go.
Do any of you knit your socks two at a time? I still haven’t tried getting into method because I don’t want to invest in a whole ton more circular needles, but thoughts?
