Metropolis Socks

OK, only one of these socks counts for Summer. It took me Spring into Summer to do the first sock and Summer to do the second sock.

The pattern is from Wildhorse Farm Designs and I bought it from at The Loopy Ewe.
The yarn is a custom dye request from Doodlebirds Creations. Beth named it capes and tights.

Summer socks

Here is my second pair and given the timing in the month, probably will be my last entry for Summer so 4 sock this time around.

The yarn is Subtle Spring from Poppy Flower Fibers. The pattern is a basic stockinette with sizing from Sensational Knitted Socks.

Summer's still here...

Due to my camera problems I haven't been able to post anything for a while.
So: here are all of my socks for the summer. It's raining outside and the temperature is about 7 Celcius, so it's more like autumn already...

1st pair:

Plain vanilla sock for my dear friend, who gave me some clothes and I promised to knit her and her son a couple of socks :). Great way to get some new stuff! I love the golden colors in these socks, and I named them Golden Tiger -socks.

Number 2:

Worsted weight and quite bulky. These should keep the toes of the 3 year old warm even when it's really cold! I wanted to do something special, so these are Mirror Image-socks.

Pair 3:

Meet my 80's Retro-disco socks! Neon colors in black background.

Number 4:

Opal Flamingo socks for my own three year old. Cuff is basic 2k2p ribbing which continues on top of the foot. These are much loved.

Last but not least: pair 5 (because three quarters of my summer socks are so tiny)

Anastasia-socks from Pepperknits.

This was my first encounter with Koigu, and I loved it! I made a couple of errors which you can see, but because I'm a lazy knitter with high tolerance, I didn't frog. So sue me :)! The pattern was great.
