I have my first finished socks of 2013 to show you today.
They are a beautiful pair of pink, white and red striped socks. The yarn is Yarntini and the color is called Strawberry Daiquiri. I’m more of a margarita girl, though, so I call them my Strawberry Margarita Socks. I deliberately mismatched the stripes this time and I think that makes them even cuter.
Plus, it makes me feel all rebellious and stuff when the picot edges and toes don’t exactly match from sock to sock.
I simply adore that these stripes are not all the same width. A wide pink stripe sandwiched between shorter stripes of red and white makes for a very striking combination, I think.
As I processed this particular photo I couldn’t help but admire those tiny, even stitches. Have you ever really looked at a handknit sock? I sort of take them for granted but there are thousands of stitches in each one and sometimes it’s good to take a step back and admire them.
I am knitter, hear me roar.
