I started with this.
Within two hours had this.
And within a day had this.
I am loving knitting this sock up. It's the new Ibiza colorway from our own Poste Yarn Striping Sock, which we dye up in our own studio. It does all the work for you, an inch of black, and inch of variegated neon colors, and all I have to do is keep knitting.
It's the kind of yarn that makes me feel good about myself. All I have to do is go about my evening, and in a few hours, I have a gorgeous sock!
We have also created Mount Doom
They both stripe in the same way as the sock above- thick black stripe and then a thick variegated stripe.

For me? It's socks. It's always socks. But I often refer to this as "sock season" because this seems to be the time of year when we all want to knit socks. Not only are they lightweight and portable as we travel in the summer, but they also don't sit in our laps making us sweat like a sweater or blanket project does. The idea of sitting at a baseball game, in the sun with a large project on my lap is not appealing. But give me a sock to knit, and I'll happily sit there all day long. And I love the idea of having a half dozen pairs of socks ready for me when the weather turns warm in the fall. Like a nice treat to myself to have new socks to wear once the weather turns cold again.
