I’m feeling indecisive, or at least indecisive enough that I don’t want to commit to a whole sweater right now. So, I took a dive into my stash and found a project that should be pretty doable. It’s nearly finished, at least, so I should be able to give myself that finished-project-serotonin-boost that I love.
You might remember that I published this pattern a few months ago- super cute Rainbow Socks.
Well, it turns out that I never actually finished the prototype. I got 80% of the way through the socks, wrote up the pattern and decided to go do something else. Typical Allison.
Eagle-eyed readers will notice that I changed the design a bit to add more rainbows at the heel and toe. I definitely like the more-is-more aspect of the final pattern, but I’m not unraveling anything right now, so I’ll keep these guys as they are, with their boring toes.
I’m determined to finish these socks! Will it take a day? A week? A month? All summer? only time will tell.
What’s the last project that you pulled out of hibernation?
It’s been a while since I was able to show you guys a new pattern, so today’s definitely a special day!
I’d like to introduce you to the happiest socks on the block: the Rainbow Socks!
These guys are in the new super-cheerful sock collection from Knit Picks (Pop Socks), which I definitely recommend you check out.
These adorable little guys are a super simple, top-down sock with an afterthought heel. The only tricky part about them is that they’re absolutely COVERED in bright, stripey rainbows! (Which isn’t really tricky, it just involves a lot of end-weaving.)
I’m so pleased with how these turned out, and even more tickled because the Knit Picks team put together a pack of rainbow-colored minis specifically for this project! You can grab the pack here!
I can’t wait to see folks start knitting up these little guys- nothing says “Spring” like hand-knits covered in rainbows!
