Socks from 2015 – Part 4

If you missed the first three installments, here are links for Part 1,  Part 2, and Part 3

Crazy Pools Socks
Pattern
: Sock Knitting Workshop
Designer: Alysania (yours truly!)
Needles: US 1.5 (2.5mm)
Yarn: Knit Picks Essential Multi in, “Confetti”
–Ravelry Project Link–
Pulled out of deep, old stash, I apparently never even added this to stash on Ravelry.  The pooling worked up SO bizarrely, but it’s interesting nonetheless.  Another yarn that really didn’t suit an intricate pattern, so I did the old standby plain vanilla sock.  Still, they’re fun colors and the yarn is a known workhorse yarn for socks, so they’ll get plenty of wear.

 

MOAR SOCKS
Pattern
: Sock Knitting Workshop
Designer: Alysania (yours truly!)
Needles: US 1.5 (2.5mm)
Yarn: Knit Picks  Felici in, “Coney Island”
–Ravelry Project Link–
Not quite as deep stash as the prior pair, but the striping was again destined for plain vanilla socks.  I believe for this pair, to maintain the stripe order, I split at the heel and worked from the other end of the ball and then went back to the regular yarn for the rest.  Nice colors, and stripes are always fun.

 

Jaywalkers
Pattern
: Jaywalker
Designer: Grumperina
Needles: US 1.5 (2.5mm)
Yarn: Snallygaster Fibers Lindy Hop Sock in, “Jeremiah”
–Ravelry Project Link–
I already knew how this yarn works up into stripes and it may be my favorite yarn to turn into Jaywalkers.  The yarn was gifted by a friend who I did some test knitting for, so these are extra special socks.  Also, blue and green and grey?  YES PLEASE.  They’re so bright, it almost makes the sparks of bright green look like lightning bolts between sky and clouds and sky.  I’m kind of regretting though not doing an afterthought heel because the striping pattern is interrupted on the gusset, but it does break up the foot and leg, and the colors are still awesome, so it’s okay.
