Well… sock.. I guess, since I only have one done.
But isn’t it cute? Such fun cheerful colours! And that little bit of lace to keep it interesting. The pattern is I Smell Snow, and it’s nice and easy to memorize.
As you can see, I’ve done the cuff, heel and toe in plain black to keep the stripes sequence intact, as I normally do with self-stripers.
The second one is already on the needles, and with any luck, I can have it done by next week. Then I can whip off a matching pair of anklets for Rowan well before her birthday.
But I better not jinx myself… the knitting fates are not to be toyed with!

Turned out really nice! Agreed – knitting (and stitching) fates are not to be toyed with…they can be mean!!!
Yep. Those knitting gods are a bit touchy these days it seems but at least you got one darling sock out of them so far.
This really turned out beautifully–I like the black heels, toes and cuff!
Love them! And the black heels, toes and cuff is perfect! It looks as if it were part of the original sequence. I may try that next time I use self striping.
Don’t mess with those knitting gods. They’re known to be cranky as of late.
Such a pretty sock with the classy contrasting heel and toe.
What a beautiful sock! Love the black heel, toe and band.
