Over the Rainbow


In an effort to bring the scrap sock yarn under control, I began knitting another pair of rainbow socks: this will be the third pair knit with the kit I purchased from Simply Socks Yarn Company. I knit the first pair for myself and the second pair for a friend.

Note: The first two pair began with red and progressed to the blue, resulting in more green, purple, and blue yarn remnants. By casting on with the green, I should have enough for final pair of rainbow socks, albeit a backwards rainbow.


Thanks to a snowy weekend, these socks are finished and ready to be gifted.

  6. Oh, I adore them! They are so bright and happy! I am new to sock knitting, but still, I didn't think that you could cast on at the same, "color point" and have matching stripes. Of course! i feel happier just seeing your socks :)

  8. Front ways or back ways the rainbow socks are a hit. I should knit a row or two! Not happening tonight though.
