Crazy Colorful Sock

When I asked my sister what kind of socks she wanted next, she said colorful. I really hope she means it! This is most of the shaft of a Circle Sock, in crazy colorful Shepherd Sock, no flash so you can see the texture. The pattern is loads of fun to knit, I haven't been able to stop knitting since I cast on. I don't know if it's the circles or the colors or a combination of both.


Same yarn with flash, which is closer to the real color. I hope she likes them!


And, because no blog post is complete without cat pictures... here is me playing with Merlin.


And here is him going berserk over the cat teaser. He's a fun cat and we love him, even though he's figured out how to disassemble his cat fountain and the hose that leads from our portable AC to the water tank. Yes, we love him even though he's a crazy cat genius!

Very colorful, indeed... but they're awesomely colorful, and the pattern looks great. *I'd* wear them.

Pretty colorway and pattern for those socks! Hehe..Merlin sounds like Sapphire, she pulled out one of my yarn cubbies and accosted a poor defenseless skein of alpaca.

Love the sock.

Love the pattern. Love. I will be stalking it to see how it turns out, then I'll queue it and make them for myself.*






*That is, if I ever manage to finish the basic socks for my daughter, that were supposedly to be done during the Ravelympics.

Oh! Neat! Charlotte (co-worker) and I were just talking about that sort of honeycomb pattern the other day. I'll have to show her your socks now!

Also, please tell me where you got your dress. And don't say that it's something you've had in your closet for the past ten years. I mean, you can, but I hope that's not the answer. Please?
