Happy Rainbow Socks

Without fail when I finish knitting a new pair of socks I’m in a good mood. Hand knit socks make me happy; I love that I’m able to create what I need and customize the fit.

Finished rainbow socks, shown on owner's size 35 feet.

This pair is knit with 1.75mm needles in Lion Brand Mani-Pedi, Crew colorway with the heel in Anzula Haiku, Mariana colorway. They follow a cuff-down construction with a french heel.

If you would like to see more photos, you can check out this project in my notebook. I’m slowly working on this new site, please let me know what you’d like to see, beyond more frequent updates.

My hope is that the yarn will wear as well as a another pair worked in Lion Brand’s Sock-Ease (sadly, both of these Lion Brand yarns are discontinued). I knit this pair in late 2009 and I wear them weekly! They weren’t taken out just for the photo shoot.

Now on my sock needles are E’s annual birthday socks. He chose Oink Pigments Targee Sock, Size of the Boat colorway.
