Because my one New Year’s resolution was to knit a pair of sock weight socks, and I am DONE! Who is the woman?? I AM THE WOMAN! (Now there are chest bumps and a victory dance that looks suspiciously like The Funky Chicken and Mr. Kninja dumps a bucket of Gatorade over my head. You’ll have to imagine that part.)
The pattern is Child’s First Sock from Nancy Bush’s Knitting Vintage Socks, and the yarn is Snowflake Sock in Cthulhu from Little Red Bicycle. I need to get modeled photos taken by someone who is Not Me, but in the meantime, enjoy some pasty legs and green clad ankles!
For the record, I am wearing pants in this picture, but I rolled them up so that the socks would be visible. Just in case you were worried. I am a pants-wearing citizen. They happen to be my husband’s penguin-festooned pajama pants right now, though, and that doesn’t really go with killer soul eating tentacly green socks of absinthe madness.
(This is the moment to insert my very most favorite Cthulhu related comic.)
I love the fact that I just knit Victorian socks in a green that ripples and undulates and shines. I know the Victorians used a lot of color, but I still think my socks would probably cause a stir. They’re just so…I don’t know the word. But I love them!
