Kool-Aid Socks

I finished one of my singles!!! Now I have a pair of socks to match my berry-blue Converse.
Yarn: Knit Picks Color Your Own sock yarn dyed with berry-blue and lemon-lime Kool-Aid
Pattern: Retro Rib Socks by Evelyn A. Clark Interweave Knits Winter 2004
Needles: Skacel 3.0 mm (is this a US #2 1/2?, it doesn't quite fit in the #2 slot on the gauge ruler)
Started: August 13, 2005
Finished: January 3, 2006

Adjustments: I only knit 12 pattern repeats for the leg instead of 17 and decreased the toe down to 24 sts instead of 16. I'm not fond of pointy toes.

I love this pattern!

I thought the retro rib socks looked good with my retro chair ;-)

They're awesome! And they DO look great with your newly covered chair. :)

Okay, you are just taunting us with multiple picks of that fab chair of yours. And now you are using it for posing your FO's! You have flung a serious crave on me - dang!
