FO: Rocket Ship Socks

I mentioned these socks in Episode 8 of the podcast, where I discussed the intentional color-pooling experiment that is central to these socks. The base pattern is a play on Susan B. Anderson’s “How I Make My Socks” to which I added ribbing, contrasting heels and toes, and a larger cast-on number of stitches for bigger feet. The socks are knit out of Miss Babs 2-ply Yummy in the “Rockteship” colorway for my dear, bus-renovator, Spencer. The heels and toes are the “Lagoon” colorway from Knitting in France–a new to me indie dyer that I love very, very much. And I was so intrigued by the colorplay between these two colorways. Here are tons of pictures from all sides so that you can check out the pooling.

  4. How cool! In the last photo, the stripes on the legs of the two socks actually seem to line up and form one continuous pattern… Awesome!
