Two Socks


I finished the second sock. Funky looking, huh? I have a philosophy about socks. (Yes, I know, I'm deep.)

Socks should be loud. Socks should have verve and attitude. Socks should positively scream that they're hand knitted.Pattern specs:
Yarn: Fortissima Socka Colori, 2 skeins (200 grams total)
Needle: Addi Lace Turbo US size 0
Pattern: Basic 64 stitch sock with short row heels

I love loud socks too. If I don't scream personality anywhere else, you can rest assured, if I can, I have on an obnoxious pair of handknit socks.

blame Granny. She got me hooked on cool socks.

I love em and I'm thinking I need THAT colorway too. *sigh*

and they match too. definitely appeals to the matchy-matchy in me!

short row heels? why do they look like heel flaps to me?! what kind of short row heels are they? i am curious.

Love your philosophy; I think my father subscribed to it as well. I think wearing crazy socks was his way of either laughing at the world, or flipping it off; either way, I thought it was great. :o)

That's exactly the way I feel about handknit socks!
