Hey, magic laser socks...

Am I brilliant or what???? I have the skillzzz to knit socks that shoot out a lazer beam of warm spring sun!



You want to know who is really brilliant? The girl who made up the pattern for these socks!
It's the Rainy Day socks from MagKnits. The yarn is some PT5 Sport from a big cone I have, KoolAid dyed with strawberry if I remember correctly, and 3 mm needles. I've submitted the socks to Socktopia in the "Spring Fling" category because the colour remind me of tulips, and tulips are usually my big spring fling. One of my favourite flowers, tulips...

I really liked this pattern. It's easy to memorize the very neat lace stitch, and with the DK yarn and thick needles these socks nearly fly off the needles.

As Duran Duran says, 'Hit me with your laser beam!' I could use a good dose of spring sunshine here in icy Delaware... love the socks, they came out really well :)

Pretty socks that double as a light saber? The Force is truly with you!

What a difference the color makes. I love yours; kind of indifferent to the originals in powder blue. Lucky niece. Lasers and all!

What a neat picture! Those are magical socks.

I agree with Elizabeth, I prefer them in that spicy red.

Those socks are GORGEOUS! And the laser beams are a neat trick. If anyone ever tells you you're knitting too much, silence them with your LASERS OF KNITTING AWESOMENESS!
