A Pair Of Bright Socks

A change from that last pair of unmatched socks . I enjoyed working on this pair – the pattern was interesting as it unfolded and while not a fan of green, in this context, I thought the colours were lovely.

Bright Socks

The yellow cuff and heel contribute to the feeling of bright. I chose to just work the toe in the variegated pattern because I thought a yellow toe would have overpowered the rest of the sock.

And, as usual, I started a next pair as soon as the needles were empty.

Talking about needles – I happened to pick up a pair of Knitters Pride “Zing” aluminum double pointed knitting needles (2.5mm) a couple of weeks ago. I was leery of working with metal needles. But these are as light as the rose wood Knitters Pride “Cubics” I’ve been using for the past several years. Unlike metal needles of old, they  slip stitches easily but don’t fall out! They’ve been very nice to knit with.
