Double Rainbow, oh my god!!!*
I finished these a while ago, just haven't been in the blogging mood recently. . .
Pattern: Rainbow Socks by Susanne Kitzmann
Yarn: Socks that Rock Lightweight, color Rock Star
Needles: size US 1.5 and 1
Modifications: I knit 4 short row sections for the foot, then knit 3 rounds even. Switched to size 1 needles and knit 1 round, then followed toe instructions.
These socks were a lot of fun to knit and very quick. It's a great pattern for crazy loud variegated sock yarn.
The pattern's directions for doing short rows is different from the way I have usually done them, so I was a little confused at first. But it was cool to try something new.
*sorry, I couldn't resist
