I do not have to do anything else this year

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!

    You certainly ARE the woman! I lovity love love those socks. And in a weird way, I think they’re perfectly appropriate as an interpretation of the Victorian era. Maybe they didn’t have wild socks like these, but let’s not forget that those folks were deeply into making jewelry out of butterfly wings and other insect parts. If that doesn’t reveal a Creepy Iridescence fetish, I don’t know what would.

      That makes perfect sense! I was saying that the color reminded me of fly eyes to my husband, but that sounds gross when you write it down, so I left that out. But yeah, maybe the Victorians would just think it was peachy keen! I could definitely imagine green Victorian socks, and had they had modern dye methods, I’m sure they’d have gone a lot wilder than they did! (Which is saying something. Have you seen the portrait of Lady Curzon’s peacock dress?)

    So pretty! I love all the colors and the yarn and pattern are a perfect match. Well done!

    Really gorgeous. I love, love that shade of green and the undulating details of the sock.

    Those are fucking beautiful. You ARE the woman.
