This week brought us around 6 inches of snow. I like snow – especially the fluffy kind that arrived this week. Plus, if we’re going to have to deal with freakishly cold temperatures (Polar Vortex, Polar Plunge, whathaveyou) we might as well have some snow on the ground to make it look like winter too. I also am pretty fond of cool winter colorways – blues and greys, but when it comes to my socks I think the more obnoxious the color, the better. Stripey or “clown-barf” variegated, those socks are more likely to match what I’m wearing. Presenting my newest pair of socks, the first pair off the needles in 2014 – my Neon Skinny Macchiattos! I enjoyed the stitch pattern in the Caffe Macchiato pattern and would knit it again. I ended up giving up on it though once I got to the heel as I was so distracted by the yarn, hence the “Skinny” in my project title. I did do the Fish Lips Kiss Heel on these and though it was tricky at first, once I got the hang of it, there were no problems. The fit is nice too. The yarn is from Wild Hare Fiber Studio, in the Neon Lights colorway. The neons are so vibrant!
It looks like we might get a bit more snow over the weekend and at the beginning of next week. I’ll be tucked in under a pile of wool! Stay warm!
