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.
