When I finished the Sad Winter Socks, I had a deep desire to knit something cheerful.
So I did.
There is no sun, so please pardon the photos.
The stitch pattern works well with self-striping yarn, and the ribbing down the leg helps to keep the socks from falling down.
I've actually had these done for awhile, but as soon as they were finished they went on my feet. Then they hung around and waited to be washed and blocked. The only reason I'm not wearing them today is that I'm wearing another pair of Felici socks. I'm confident these will be in heavy rotation.
Take that, Winter.
