Comments:  I absolutely love the yarn I used for these socks. I love the color combination in it, the way it pooled, and the way it feels.

The pattern was very fun to knit, and fairly easy to do too. I'd recommend it for anybody who wants to knit socks.

 Leg showing stitch pattern detail.

My excellent gusset corner and bit of the heel pattern. I'd not done this heel before. I like it.

The toe detail.

 On my feet so you can see how the stitch pattern decreases to the toe.

All in all, I love love love them! I'm going to enter them in the fair this year.


I didn't want my needles to get a chance to cool off ( hee hee), so as soon as I was done with the socks, I cast on another project. Well, actually, it's the continuation of a past project.

I've decided to make the second Rainbow For My Hands mitt and enter the pair in the fair. It's next month, so I gotta get busy.

Live long and prosper. \\//
