Colorful Booties and Socks


It is the Year of Colorwork, but mostly what I've done so far is produce a few colorful items!  I've been making this baby bootie pattern for years, mostly from leftover sock yarns.  This particular yarn is what remained from last fall's Flamewalker Socks.  That these booties stand up all by their jaunty selves makes them particularly appealing.


These are Crazy For You socks.  They haven't told me yet exactly whom they are crazy for, but I'll let them ponder that for a while.  It appears I may have caught a bit of Knitting New England's Tangerine Tango with all of these orangey colors!

Five Chakras With Atheist Purple Stripe


Here are the Seven Chakras socks, with a small change that hasn't stopped amusing me since I contrived it earlier this week.  I'm glad these are finally finished - they had their own project bag for a couple of years, and mocked me endlessly from there.
