Two pairs of socks - Qualified Perceptions

Two pairs of socks
Yay for vacation knitting! I made the legs for the purple socks a little short because I was worried about having not enough yarn (Sundara has lovely colors, but the length is a little scant, and also there are more slubs than I approve of). I quite like the diagonal pattern; I may do this again, though it's a little tricky for two at a time knitting. The rainbow socks are called "Pessimist's Rainbow", and I love the colors - the rainbow is bright, and the blue between the rainbows is a nice tonal variegation that could be a colorway in its own right. The scan kind of maxed out the yellows by focusing on the blue, oh well. The pattern is a simple toe-up, but it has a heel flap, which I appreciate.


The rainbow socks were my current knitting-at-work project, so now I don't have a project for the all hands meeting today, oops. I guess I'll just have to sit quietly like everyone else.

Yay warm pretty socks! I wouldn't complain about an end-of-storm rainbow, either. Enough snow already ...

Nice! I like the diamond pattern too. :-)

I love that you scan your socks for pictures.

What yarn are the rainbow socks made of?
