Rainbow Brite Socks

I started these socks with the intent to give Spring a big ole shove and hopefully appear somewhere on The Ridge. Well it worked!!! I will  have more about that later but for now lets talk about the socks!!

Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in Rainbow * They just brought out the new colours of Felici and Rainbow is back among them, get it now if you want it, its a big hit!*

Needles: 2.25mm circ

Pattern: My own toe up recipe

I love how loud these socks are they remind me of Rainbow Brite do you remember her? I have a Rainbow Brite Annual from 1989 that I can’t wait to share with T when she’s older. The perfect pair of Spring pick me up socks don’t you think?

I’m participating in 12 in 2011. The group states that you can make 12 things out of stash yarn in 2011. I’m choosing to focus on socks since 99% of my stash seems to be sock yarn so I will be knitting 12 pairs of socks from STASH yarn, that would be yarn that I DIDN’T buy this year. These socks will be pair #2 and my Taglioni’s are pair #1 which I forgot to mention in my post about them. 10 more to go!!

If you need me I’ll be frolicking in rainbows!

  1. How cheerful! I didn’t realize you were a toe-up fan, I’ve yet to knit one. Well….I clicked on the link and joined because I definitely need to bust some stash. Spring has arrived? What is it like in May? The hubster has his eye on a New England/Canada cruise so he can escape from his job.

  2. Rainbow Brite! That brings back memories. I’m curious as to how to do your heel-flaps when working from the toe-up. I’m a toe-up novice without much incentive to try more since I’m not a big fan of short-row heels.

  3. Hey, your plan worked for us here in Saskatchewan too! The big melt has begun.

    Those are perfect socks for spring!

  4. Love the socks! I had Rainbow Brite Roller Skates when I was a kid! Don’t know if they make roller skates anymore since it’s roller blading now a days. Melody recently found some old Rainbow Brite movies on Netflix instant download and has been enjoying them.

  5. These look like happy socks (if that can be!) The stripes look wonderful and this basic pattern of yours could not be a better fit! I look forward to seeing the next 10 socks… I’m starting to think that I may want to do a 12 socks kind of year maybe in 2012!

  6. I made rainbow socks too! Although I made mine so that the stripes are very different. I like my socks to be fraternal rather than identical!
