New Socks!

I am wearing new socks today...

New socks are fun but these really make me happy. They are so bright and psychedelic. Wool dye on acid. I normally hate the pooling that hand dyed yarn can produce but this I embraced and love.

They are pretty from all angles.

But they are best peaking out from under my jeans...

Pattern : Wollmeise Sock by Monica Jines located free on the Loopy Ewe Website

Yarn: Woolmeise Wellemsittichvogelfeder also purchased at the Loopy Ewe.

Needles: US #1 Magic Loop

Mods: I knit the pattern into a point at the top of the foot rather than all the way down to the toe. I got tired of it and wanted a quick finish.

New socks. It's going to be a good day today.
