Two Toe Tuesday: The Most Beautiful Socks in the Room

Stripe Socks So Far

And when they're on the street, depending on the street, I bet they are definitely in the top three. *

These are the Summer Sky Socks, in Vesper striping yarn, and they're coming along nicely even though I'm using size 0 needles. I knit about an inch while in line for the iPhone, the rest has been in bits and pieces. The only issue I have is that they are a little roomy, but the pattern is a 5-stitch repeat so the minimum increment between sizes is 10 stitches, and I thought that 60 stitches would be too small. I'm not really willing to go to a size 00 on socks, so I'll make do. I love the stripes!!

* See this video if you're not sure what I'm talking about. And no, the Smooshy Socks are not in the room--they're in my sock drawer.
